I recall a discussion on the List, last century, where different 
countries had different shades of CDL due to the different species of 
Flax in the various countries used to make the linen. German Flax was 
supposed to give a grayish CDL. Then I have seen B&W photos of German 
CDL that looks a very translucent white, though that may be due to 
lighting at the time of the photo and the airplanes were Albatros, not 
Fokker. Sorry that's not any definite help.

Having slogged through the 1/32 Battle Axe E.III, I'll be real 
interested in how these WNW kits go together. Please keep us posted on 
your progress when you start
