I have an MPM Blenheim mk1, very nice 1/72 kit. I heard Romappreciatedhem and i would like to know what colors they were, RAF Brown n Green over Sky? Or something else? When were they used in combat and where? What squadrons flew them?

I can find very little info on them so any help is greatly appreciated!

They were received with the original RAF cammo but with romanian cockade. In the war was added the Michael cross and yellow axis ID.
