cool What I took for granted is actually great art...move over Red Baron!

Paint does makes a big difference in weight and drag: my dad's B-29's in WWII being a 'prime' case in point!
Quote:
However like many late War USAAF aircraft they were often left unpainted and just polished. The chief purposes of paint on combat aircraft was to make them less conspicuous when on the ground, to protect them during air raids. However the weight of the paint and the surface drag created degraded the planes performance. By early 1944 the USAAF usually had air superiority over its airbases and the benefits of paint no longer outweighed it drawbacks. Aircraft in service were stripped of paint during major servicing and repairs and the manufacturers began delivering new aircraft unpainted. Like this famous BBY>
