Vintage magazine cover




Cover of September 6, 1939 issue of magazine "Shashin Shuho" (Photo Weekly News) featuring an Army Type 92 Fighter or Kawasaki KDA-5 belonging to the Rikugun Koku Shikan Gakko (Army Air Academy) with a most unusual paint-job on the wings. I believe the colour of the "saw teeth" is red but their exact purpose is unknown. Any ideas?

Why do you believe that ''saw teeth'' are red? Do you think that cover author colored this photo in wrong way?
