In a way post-war, but there was a very early Soviet pilot (who also flew during the Russian Civil War) with the last name of Kozhevnikov. He flew Fokker D.VIIs in the early twenties for the Soviets before he was "executed".

I'm trying to find any and all information on him not only for a build, but also to try and piece together his life, especially around the time he flew the Dutch-built D.VIIs. TIA!

Ask the Beerdrinker. He might be the closest to any sources that remain.

Kozhevnikov - flew a Fokker D.VII (and C.II) with an Egyptian "sphinx-face" on the side.

Kozhevnikov - is pleased widespread surname, and I have found some pilots with such surname (one even the general), but all of them flied in WW2 or later. I shall look else. It became interesting to me too. Surnames Kozhevnikov and Sapozhnikov are similar on ethymology, and Sapozhnikov - well known pilot of Civil War in Russia. But, as far as I know, he did not fly on the German airplanes. For this reason I have asked his surname.
Sincerely yours,
Pavel
