(Glenn-)Martin B.10 (139/166)
At delivery the aircraft were in standard USAAC colour scheme of a blue fuselage, Light Blue Shade 23, and yellow wings and tail units, Yellow Shade 4. The rudder was in red, white and blue, but painted over in 1939. It is unlikely that this colour scheme had also the orange triangle applied, which were in use from the second half of 1939.
During 1940 all remaining aircraft were sprayed in Olive Drab, Shade 41 (called "Old Blad" (old leave)); the under side was sprayed with aluminium dope. Also the Dutch roundels were replaced with the orange triangles in four positions, not on the undersides of the wings! Initially the rudder was also painted orange, but soon the rudder was painted in Olive Drab. Uncertain is whether the triangles were reduced in size like the RNlNAS did. I haven't seen any photo's of this.
During 1941 several Martins had a two tone camouflage pattern applied on the upper surfaces of the wings, colours used were "Oud Blad" and "Jong Blad" (Olive Drab, shade 41 and Medium Green, shade 42).
February 1942 the remaining aircraft had the triangles replaced with the Dutch flag.
