I'm pretty sure the scheme to which you referred was introduced sometime in the autumn of 1940, after the Sky underside. I can't be more precise because I'm b*ggered if I can find the reference to it that I know I've read in one of the books that I'm sitting by as I typeNo probs Barry. I just thought I’d mention it before you put the top wing on and made correction almost impossible
I did find an AMO dated 6/3/41 which specifically states that the top surfaces of the lower mainplanes of bi-planes should be regarded in the same way as the visible upper surfaces (as should the interplane struts and the top of the floats on floatplanes). That would be the formal end of the different colours on upper and lower wing top surfaces.
