RF-101 Striped Voodoos–Part 1

Untitled 1Untitled 2 I have always loved this RF-101A paint scheme ever since I saw it on our McAir flight ramp (See sketch in with photos).  It appears to be a trial camouflage for the mostly bare metal or gray Voodoos up until this time; but, before the T.O. 114 SEA Camouflage standardization.  The first photo above seems to have a tan color as well as the green with black stripes, while the second photo has only green with the stripes. Any thoughts?

Hi! The first image is of a machine that I am building as a 1/72 model. The scheme is one of many experimentals at Shaw AFB in the mid 1960s. My interpretation is that it is overall greens (x2) and tan/brown with Olive Green/Olive Drab striping for Exercise Desert Strike. The image was taken at Ontario Airport, Ca.
