Hi Jean-Baptiste,

Definitely, the autumn leave was applied on a "natural" finish : CDL for the
wing and varnished wood for the fuselage.

Many sources are available with a little search : a serie of article made by
Dr O'Connor in C&C International Vol. 16 to 18,  the bible on the
Austro-Hungarian aircrafts by the same author published by FMP, the Japo
book on the Berg and a lot of articles published in Scale Models in the

Hope this is help

I've a question about the Aviatik Berg mottle camo (the same question about
Phoenix DI fighter) / The mottle (green and brown ) of the so called
"autumn scheme" is applied with a sponge on the wing upper surface and the
fuselage. If there is no problem about the underlayer of the wings (linen)
Was the fuselage painted in yellow or was it just varnished and then
Thanks in advance for your reply
