There is a larger foto of this a/c in Osprey D.VII aces.
One of the better values of this particular foto is a good view of the underside of the aircraft. I believe there are three of this one, crashed near hangars. Best look I know of an early D.VII delivered to a frontline unit.
In any case, D.VIIs do not have tapes on ailerons or stab. Eduard depicts all 12 variations in the latest kit as such, OAW tapes. Quick glance at fotos proves otherwise.
NICE Dr., Blowhard!
"A King may move a man, a father may claim a son,
but remember that even when those who move you be Kings,
or men of power, your soul is in your keeping alone.
When you stand before God, you cannot say,
"But I was told by others to do thus."
"Virtue was not convenient at the time."
This will not suffice.."
