Southern E-8 Paint Colors

D. Scott Chatfield

My opinion from looking at photos is that the transition era green was a bit brighter, and the '70s era green was not only a little darker but also a tad bluer.

Hi all,

I am working on another project and trying to gather info on E-8 paint colors.
Is the green paint on the E-8's as built different or the same as the green applied later on them in the "Southern Crescent" scheme of the 70's.
