Boy, that's going to take some work!

Is the fuselage normally painted, or bare metal?

I could not tell you. I only work with modern fighters, all painted.

Either, depending on unit and service era being depicted. Outdoors may metal restored aircraft in a non-desert envirpnment should be painted silver as an anti-corrosion measure, unless there is a desire for constant upkeep.
