I have begun Sopwith 1 1/2 Strutter #5 and this time I thought I'd try the 
Toko trainer kit and do the Orenburg Soviet 1930 trainer.  The kit says CDL 
but as we know, there is some evidence that some (Maybe all?) of the French 
Strutters were silver doped.

Any views on whether this one should be silver doped.  What if it was silver 
doped then they painted it CDL?  Would they do that?  Why?  They used silver 
doped WWI left-overs like Niueports.
