Nice skins ! Bravo !
But I am very surprised to see the blue of the cockade so pale!
Are you sure she was that... sickly?  :-|

Nice skins!

The pale blue seems to be correct though

Also, allow me the question if you are running a dedicated graphics card? Like some NVidia  or AMD?
I ask because your screenshots show a crazy amount of pixel step effect. Apparently you have no post rendering anti-aliasing? Any grahic card control center would allow you to make this look much better.

The pale blue comes from a chemical process, in dispersive paints wanted, in these old Laqueurs
sadly an unwanted side effect. 50s/60s French National insignias got this all the way,
making it hard even to decipher a Blue in a row of Planes shown (flightline french F-84s),
as each has a different tone of degradation.
Another prominent example of paint degradation is the NVA LSK Insignia after change from
Decal to Paint applied (late 60s). Red turned into bright Orange,
while the Decals lasted 3 or 4 Decades, without showing signs of degradation(only cracks).
Ask any former Squadron Painter on this issue.
And only LSK Squadron painters knew, that the paint applied Insignia had a allover white
undercoating (the cause of the chalking effect). At NVA-LSK this chalking effect was even affecting horridly at the
camouflaged greens, leading to allover chalked paint effects on these 3-4-5 Tone Schemes.

Mark the red was intended Signal red RAL standing, that's what the colour looks after 3 weeks exposure to UV Light.


The term is sedimentation or dispersion, a chemical effect used for Disperse Colours in Living Rooms,
go give a Matte, chalkish effect.
This effect is not to be exchanged with usual paint weathering, degradation.
To check it's chalking or weathering simply dip fingers over the area, if finger got stained,
it's chalking if clean, weathering.
