A few years back at the annual WW1 scale contest at Old Rhinebeck
a guy did show up with an Eindecker covered with clear monokote. Actually
it was a Protor "Antic" which he had heavily modified and it did look quite
convincing from 15 feet or so.
Watching it fly, it DID flash quite a bit as the sun bounced off
the gloossy clear covering, but at cetain aspect angles, it disappeared
(or nearly so) real fast! He flew it quite close in after that.
