 Would anyone know the colors of this Sopwith Pup A6249 with its very large fuselage dragon?

Interpretations are that the dragon on this one is red with white details.

My good friend Paul Carpenter built an Eduard kit a number of years back with these markings; here is his interpretation.



There's also this one as well.



Hope this helps!

 Thanks Brad. I was thinking the dragon could be black or red based on the tone of the photo but was leaning towards red as black on PC-10 seemed too drab. Great looking model Pup and decoration.
