Warlord Aircraft Colors?

Post by DonMegel » 08 Dec 2016 02:00

I understand that several of the Warlords owned aircraft during the 1920-1928 period but I am having trouble finding color photographs. Does anyone have any information on what colors the aircraft were? Would they have just been the same color as when they were purchased?

No the warlords would often repaint them differently. The colour scheme varies among different warlord factions.
