Potez 63.11

A modified version of an earlier reconnaissance aircraft, the Potez 637, the Potez 63.11 flew for the first time on 31 December 1938. It featured a completely redesigned forward fuselage that included an angular glazed nose section. Between November 1939 and June 1940, the Armee de l'Air took delivery of 723 Potez 63.11s. After the armistice, surviving aircraft saw extensive service with both Free French and Vichy forces; in 1942 many were adopted by the Luftwaffe for training and liaison duties.

Looking for the camouflage colors for aircraft #1 G.A.O. 1 /583; Aleppo, Syria, early 1941. Potez 63.11. Is anything avaliable. Trying to replicate markings for my model of this aircraft for my WWII collection. Thank you for any help.
