Fastened on the port side of the Fokker D VIIs just ahead of the cockpit was an envelope containing the rigging instructions. What was the color of the envelope?
They don't seem to be white. Are they grey? are they buff or manilla?
Last year when I was at the Smithsonian I pored over U 10 but I don't recall seeing the envelope.
I'm still working (about an hour a week) on that lovely D VII of Starks and I'd love to add this minute detail along with the datum line.This done, I think I'm going to 1/48. 1/72 seems a lot smaller than it used to be.
Thanks in advance because I know what a helpful lot the Forumites are.
Best Regards to all,
Terry

Terry Crisp:
It is not an envelope, It is a printed piece of paper with the instruction on assembling the Fok. D.VII. It is simply set in wet dope and then doped over to protect the paper. Some one called it a pocket with the instruction is it, it is just what I described. I have copies of this document.
Blue skies,
