Hi Bill,

I am hoping you can shed some light on a question I have. Back in the 50s you took a photo of a Resort Airlines DC-4 at Oakland ( refer to the urls below ). A friend is repainting a virtual DC-4 model for Flight Simulator 9 and he wants to know what the color was in the nose area between the lower cheat line and the cockpit windows. (picture attached). Also do you know what color the lower cheatline was? Red? We know the darker cheat line and tail was a dark blue. Its too bad that the picture was not in color. The color looks to me as if it could have been a light yellow or green or grey even??

I am not holding my breath as its been some 60 years since those pictures were taken but I had to ask. Hope this finds you well. Take care,

Best regards,
