I got some of the True North Fokker DXXI for my brave Finnish Air Force, with which to smite the Bolsheviks.
Nice model. I love spats on a plane.

A friend gave me one to paint up for his Dutch FoW army.
What color should I paint the plane? My default spray can for unknown planes is a medium to dark green.

Luckily, the kit comes with Dutch decals. Which way should the orange triangle point? Up? Down? Left? Right?

Hmm…should I hit you with "We've discussed this before!"?

Nah, try this: link

The triangle points down / aft. It looks like the medium green spray will work with some tan and brown splotches. :)

Well, I DID do a TMP search that came up empty.

Ooooooh, that camo is pretty, and I love the orange tail.

Truth be told, I have no idea if it has come up here before or not. I just felt like twisting your tail. It is a good looking bird!

It is possible that Dutch Fokkers were painted with german paints, so RLM61, 62 and 63. That is what says this guy:
