Whilst I was painting my dakota today, a thought went through my mind and that was:

How were real planes during WWII painted?

I imagine modern planes are sprayed but how did they paint WWII planes (and even WWI planes for that matter) and get perfect edges and smooth finishes?

Or is this all an illusion? Were they actually covered in brush marks and the patterns were poorly done? Or did they have airbrushes or rattle cans back in the 40's?

The answer is probably on the internet somewhere but when I searched, all that came up was a load of model forums where people were asking how to paint camo on their scale models.



EDIT: Whilst browsing the forums for other things, I found a whole post regarding this; sorry for the inconvenience!
