paint finish


Recommended Posts

Question for those who may know, I'm getting ready to paint the wings and fuselage, (once the weather co-operates), of my D.v Albatros, and was wondering what type finish it would have. Gloss, Matte, something in between?


Reference photos aren't easy for me to distinguish from, and not having access to any replica or museum aircraft of that era, I was hoping someone here might know.


The markings I'm planning to use are of Otto Kissenberth, Jasta 16b. Since this is my first WWI aircraft, I'm not really familiar with how they were painted. If I'd picked something that was varneshed wood, it would be so much easier, but I've never been known to do the easy thing...
