      Hi Andrew,
      the color yes, the pattern no.
      The B4 had an aft zig-zag pattern while the -600 was a straight line.

      Cheers,
      Christian

      Hi Andrew, I've seen examples of the 600 having both the straight line and the zig-zag pattern.

      Looks like it depends on the aircraft.

      What aircraft are you trying to depict?

      The so-called zig-zag pattern is the same on the B2/4 and -600 minus the outline for the outboard aileron on the B2/4's. Some airlines updated their A300's (classics and -600's) to the straight pattern only. It depends on the airline, the airplane and what timeframe you're wanting to model it from.

      Well I was looking at Citybird A300-600 or a Korean one. But undecided.

      Either of those will have the standard, as-delivered zig-zag -600 pattern.
