Fokker Streaking Camo

I saw a thread awhile ago on this and could not find it.
People were discussing the paints and techniques they used to achieve the streaking pattern. Please help me locate and or give me your ideas on achieving this.
By the way this is for a DVII fuse.


Thanks
Stephen L.

Try this one for streaking methods.




You may also find this of interest, if you missed it the first time around. Discussion centers on the streaked D.VIIs.

There are at least two of us still firmly and quietly in the minority camp, I think.

Stephen--
I'm just finishing up Emil Thuy's DVII from Jasta 28, which, aside from the yellow tail, is Fokker olive streaked over light grey. I used a #4 brush from Floquil. I used the dry-brushing technique and it came out pretty good. I'll have a picture up by Monday night, so check on the 'model' thread and see if you like it. MisterKit makes a great Fokker Olive Green, BTW...


From the Factory on the hill,
John

I don't know if it was discussed before but I used water colors on a Dr.I I did several years ago.

The colors a bit off but the effect is nice and with water color, you can add or take away the amount of color and streaking until it's just right. Just hit it with some clear lacquer and you're set. Similar to oils really but not as messy and much thinner.

-I also know the fuselage markings are wrong but it was before I had seen the side photo of this plane, the one in the Osprey book. All I had was the Windsock Dr.I Special to go on :P

Speaking of which, Eduard's new edition of their D-VII kit gives markings for Gabriel's plane and other streaky Fokkers.

Streaks

Thanks everyone!
Blowhard your DR1 still looks nice to me "eye of the beholder" I guess. I would think that oils would give a good effect and I remember those being discussed previously. I would rather work with acrylics instead of oils or enamels for this effect though.

Eric I believe the thread you posted was the one I remember.
I just purchased some 4 color lozenge upper and lower from Mr Stephen Lawson great site by the way and good prices!
I am going to build Wenzel's DVII from Jasta 6.
A N.28 is going to accompany the DVII as well

I will let you know how it comes out I have few models to finish before I get to the DVII. Maybe I will set those aside and start on this. I usually like to build straight out of the box. The DVII is an old Monogram from what I remember as a kid that was a fun one to build!

Yes, they do.

A closer look at over 10 photos may be useful.

Eric, By the way, the pic of 244/18 in original markings appears in GvWs Data File Fabric Special on Von Richthofens Flying Circus. Hiding in Plain Site all of this time. Original Maltese crosses etc, no special markings. Small pic, don't know if it will answer your questions or not

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!
