Re: [WWI] CDL or silver?New is relative as the M1s had been out of production for some time when sold to Chile. By that stage a good deal of the surviving M.1Cs were in aluminum finish. ... the photos are very poor and contrasty, but I would tend to think that they show an aluminum machine. Here is a contemporary machine

    This is the Bristol M.1C flown by Dagoberto Godoy across the Andes in Dec 12, 1918. According to the Datafile, the 12 Bristols sent to Chile were brand new and arrived by October, 1918. 

    The top fuselage is also painted, any clue about this?
