Nice pictures!

One question: Would the Boomerang be painted in such high-gloss paint during war-time?

The glossy paint job would so impress the Japanese pilots that they would be dazzled into a stupor...while staring at the beauty of the finish of one plane, his wingman would sneak in and shoot them down. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

Seriously, I'm sure a matte finish was used during wartime. I've heard that (modern) glossy paints tend to be easier to clean, more resistant to chipping/wear, etc.
