Gloss finish

Generally speaking glossy finishes are inaccurate on W.W.II aircraft, although some owners do prefer them as it makes it 'easier to keep clean'. Remarkable, really, as 'ease of use' is otherwise quite a low item on the attraction-list for warbirds.

However they occasionally do have an unexpected benefit; the medley of sheens and reflections on this P-40 captured at Oshkosh do show what a great piece of sculpture the type is, and also help to hide the remarkably inaccurate colours. A picture I was quite pleased with as a result.
