hi all

Concerning the painting of the SPAD XIII of Fonck. Finally of its representation, because it was not the decoration of origin. The painting and in fact very particular with reflections alu. (Greatly to amplify with the flash of the camera).  
But it is not of origin. Distrust therefore.  

Bonjours à tous.  
Concernant la peinture du SPAD XIII de Fonck. Enfin de sa représentation, car ce n'était pas la décoration d'origine. La peinture et effectivement très particulière avec des reflets alu. Mais elle n'est pas d'origine. Méfiance donc.
