I had recalled seeing a color photo of what looked like a new PC U33C posted
to the ABPR a few years ago. After searching my butt off I finally found it. I
recalled it looking sort of green, but it turns out that the whole image has a
greenish cast to it. It's a nice shot anyway.
This shot also illustrates very well the faired radiator housing on the early
U33's which was squared off in later production.
I also recall seeing a two or three unit brand new lashup of PC U33C's on a
decent quality video, they looked very black IIRC. It might be up at our model
RR club, I'll have to check when I get up there.
