Esteemed forum members;

I am tying to locate some more exacting data on the skin colors of a Junkers D.I (3111/18), FA-416, based at Vainode (Wainoden), Couronia, 1919. This particular a/c was flown by Fw. Erich Schaefer, while he was assigned to FA-416.

I am working on some art work on this particular a/c, but am encountering some challenges in determining the appropriate upper and lower surface colors for my project. The one photograph available to me of this a/c appears to have a two-color finish - but I may be wrong on this as the photograph is not of the best quality.

I would be most appreciative of any help, hints or guidance, as to where I could find some data, which I can then apply to my own art work.

Thank you kindly in advance for any assistance efforts, which may be rendered on my behalf.

Regards;

Arvo L. V.

Hi,

No clues about the unit's colours for the moment. FFA416 was one of the units of the Sachsenberg Geschwader under General Graf von der Goltz. They also flew Fokker DVII. Their first task was airprotection but they didn't see much enemy airplanes and were also involved in groundattacks.
Erich Chaefer could be the guy that flew with Sachsenberg for the I MFJ. There was a Schaefer. Don't find his first name directly.

Oh yes,

Schaefer was not a naval pilot, so this might work out to be right.
