[WWI] CDL or silver?

My thoughts are that the aircraft would have been delivered to Chile in the
standard RFC finish, as they were part of the RFC order. i.e. PC10 or PC12
upper surfaces and whole of fuselage, CDL underside of wings.
>From the pictures I guess the wheel discs are PC 10 or 12, with a CDL or
white fin.

All this assumes the aircraft were sent straight from production/stores. If
they had been through a training squadron then they could end up any colour
of the rainbow.
