I found this on e-bay but the shade of blue looks way too light. If Olympic ever used this it had to be very early, but in that case the belly had to be natural metal and not grey as shown. Any suggestions before I buy it?

Hello,
Yes, it seems that the blue is way too light.  And yes, the belly should be bare metal.

Thank you Giwrgo. I also found this which I think is more accurate. I wanted the 1/72nd but for accuracy I'll go 1/144. http://www.ebay.com/itm/251757142390?_trksid=p2060778.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

Sorry about the EN but my Greek grammar goes up to 5th grade and that was back in the 60's.

Wishing you and all who read this a Merry Christmas and a Happy and prosperous 2015!

Yes, this is more accurate.  I'm not 100% sure, but I think that on the starboard side (right) the legend was in English "Olympic" and not in Greek on both sides.  I may be wrong and confuse it with the DC-6 however.

No worries, write in whatever you feel comfortable.  If you want answers in Greek to practice, just say so.

Wishing you and all who read this a Merry Christmas and a Happy and prosperous 2015!
Merry Christmas and peaceful, prosperous new year to you too with good health first of all.
