    Im wondering if the colour in the drawings which looks blue may be something the artist did or its distorted when it was scanned
    ref colour yellow i found this info,again from..navord op 1665.."HE bombs were originally painted yellow by the british.The change to dark green was made about the same time that the united states changed to olive drab,consequently yellow bombs may still be found" document dated 1944
