This has been giving me hard time for a while now:
The confusion about X-Wing Red 6.
On the few photos that are public on Red 6 there are two different birds shown.
One of them has 6 stripes, dark red areas on Engine, inner wings, fuselage and canopy frame.
The other one is the one with the red laser canon on upper starboard wing.
But this one does definitely not have 6 stripes (can't tell how many it actually has - so I guess it could be Red 10) and it has a totally different paint scheme.
To show what I mean I use the photos that are puplic on modelermagic:
This seems to be an early stage of the paintjob on Red 6:
It looks like the lower port side laser canon has a dark red area, too. The rest of the colors are not painted on yet.
And here is the same bird (at least I guess so) later with finished paintjob:
Again, a dark read port side lower laser canon. Multiple areas painted in dark red and a green color as appears on hero Red 3.
I can only assume that this image has been flipped because the dark red canon is on lower starboard side here:
Then, there is a picture of an X-Wing with 6 stripes on the wing where the canopy frame is painted in some bluish grey instead of dark read, while showing the some pattern.
And now - in opposition - the mysterious other X-wing.
Not the completely different paintjob, the dark red laser canon on top starboard side. I assume that this is the bird that is shown on the famous pictures with the team and all the X-wings, y-wings and Tie's on one table - yet missing the red stripes and markings.
When you look at the port side lower wing - barely visible - you'll notice that there are definitely no 6 stripes there. Could be five or 10...
