Question for the historical experts.

I know this is a long shot. I recently purchased the excellent 1/72 Special Hobby Harvard boxing of Academy's T-6G molds and would like to build the AT-6G of the Lebanese Air Force as provided on the Armycast Texan decal sheet

Clicky

Unfortunately, I only found two black an white pictures of Lebanese Texans and the question remains, is it overall natural metal or yellow?
Thanks for the support.
Best regards
Michael

In these rare images, the L-125 looks silver. The profiles and figure of the L-130 show yellow.

Or white, like their SM.79s?

I'd say that can be ruled out. There is a distinctive difference in the light colored area of the rudder and national insignia to the rest of the fuselage.

Example 1 - scroll down

Example 2

Initial batches of Harvard's came from RAF stock. That would support the yellow opinion.

I tend to concour. Since to upper front edge of the rudder has a different color shade than both the top of the red rudder as well as the empennage.
