Hi there,
I'd like to ask a few questions and opinions re the Triplanes of Janzen and Rahn for my dual Revell build:

Janzen,Jasta 6:
On some color plates I see both sets of V-struts turquoise, yet on the picture with Janzen in front of his machine they clearly look darker, I'd go for for olive, other opinions ?

The lower wing iron crosses, seem to be black on a white background, with spars accentuated, either because of becoming dirty or is it because the fabric fields are left natural?

Rahn, Jasta 19:
How would the underwing crosses look ? Rienaus machine, also from Jasta 19 has black crosses with thin white borders as far as I can see, would that be okay for Rahn, too ? Would the white fields be overpainted with turqoise/light blue in that case?

And as a general question, would the fuselage bands go over the underside too ? I'd say yes for identification but don' really know.

These are the last open questions for the builds.

Thanks in advance,

ManfredL; greetings. I suggest you contact Aerodrome member and noted aurhority Dan San Abbott in thre area of colour markings. The Fokker Dr. I lower wing crosses were on a CDL (clear doped linen) field from the factory. Also try these threads
