I have just picked up a Sword kit of the Grumman Goose at a swap meet.
Many years ago I photographed RP-C864 at Ballarat. It became VH-MBA and I have a photo of it stripped to natural metal at Caboolture. Subsequently it was repainted as DQ-AYL but may never have been exported to Fiji.
There was a cryptic message on a website that an Avenger and Goose have now been moved to Wangaratta.
The only other Geese on the Aussie register that I have found were VH-WET and VH-AAY and VH-AAZ (I think) in the 1930s.
Any information on where I could obtain colour schemes on an Aussie civil registered Goose would be appreciated.
The following link is to some pics of VH-MBA.
I don't know when the change to DQ-AYL was but I do know that Barry Hempel flew this aircraft across the Pacific to Archerfield in 1999. When there it had the same scheme as the third last photo on the link provided.
