Siemens-Schuckert D.III/IV Replicas

Does anyone know of any replicas or original aircraft?

I believe there is a D.III at Rhinebeck, built by Cole in 1969 (according to ORA website). Swanson built a D.IV replica in the 1979/1981 time frame. I have six pictures of this one. This one:

looks identical to the pics I have, so it may be the same aircraft.

This D.IV is at the Aviation Heritage Centre at Omaka, NZ, a must see museum. It says there that no complete originals survive and that this replica originally flew in the USA and was then shipped to NZ.

I think I've seen another one in Europe somewhere... maybe Poland? I'll try to find it.

Edit: There is a partial one (wings are not on it) in the aviation museum in Krakow.


And there IS one at Rhinebeck.

Siemens-Schuckert D.IV

I Was wondering what the Göttingen 180 airfoil's measurements are?

I know it was exactly 1 meter in chord but that's all

Can someone help me out or maybe you even have a large picture

I have the Drawings from Over the front but those are quite small and therefore inaccurate to measure
