WWII Time Airplane

Main Question or Discussion Point

I'm planning to build myself a WWII time Airplane. i need some insght into the types of materials that can be used for it.
Specifically, i'm facing problem in finding a suitable covering material for the wings. i would require a light cloth or a plastic sheet, probably. I've used wood to make the spars. I'm using steel and aluminium pipes to construct the frame.
Also, i need to know the rough value of rpm of the propeller that i should have.
please help me out with this.
Suggestions welcomed. Thank u in anticipation.

The Mosquito was a wood and fabric airplane. That's an exception though. Most were metal or mixtures of.
