Will it also spawn in white & red or only in green & red? Sorry if this question was asked before.

P.S. The mod looks awesome, can't wait!

Depends on the version.

Earlier carrier based Type 21 and 22 Zero's were off white/grayish color.

As the war progressed and more aircraft were based on land from bases in New Guineau and the Solomons they started painting the aircraft green for cammo.

It is not uncommon to see aircraft in a transitional period where they have green zig zags or cammo spots painted over the greyish white airframe's upper surfaces.

Later Type 21's and 22's had grey, then mottled cammo and by the Type 32 most were overall green upper surfaces or green over grey.

IIRC almost all type 52's were green.

If you are talking about the stripes on the propeller and tail that is usually the carrier air groups markings.

All more simple. In summer 1943 IJN change paintscheme for carrier aviation. From this time basical color - green. Before this time IJN use light grey color, but not for all types of carrier aircraft. B5N2 Model 12 (Kate) have green basical color.

But as always there are usually exceptions

This is supposed to be a paint scheme used by B5N Kate's flying from the Shokaku during the Pearl Harbor attack. kated.jpghttp://modelingmadness.com/scotts/axis/j/kated.jpg
