Am finishing this up using the Monogram 1/48th scale. I have seen many different set ups for her. 1. The vertical stabilizer has the red section. 2. sdded Both the horizontal rear stabilizers have red on the top. 3. added red tips to main wings and red underneath the rear stabilizers. 4. added a large patch of OD on top of left wng and green splotches on sides. So did she change over time, or does no one really know and are best guesses? I have only seen one color pix of her and that looks colorized.

I doubt you'll find much more exhaustively researched info anywhere.

seriously doubt this is colorized given the subtlety of shades (but remember old film doesn't always give 100% accurate colors):
