SPAD XIII S.16546 ' Flag Bus'
Captain Reed Chambers
94th Aero Sqn USAS
Spring 1919

 

During early 1919

the pilots of the 94th Aero Sqd decided to paint their SPAD XIIIs.

In an attempt to outdo one another they came up with what were termed the "showbirds"

 

Hello Fighter .. I'm sorry that it took a while.
Maybe you have noticed ... the ROF version had to be improved, because the side stripes are not the original position.
The lighting / Bumpmap conditions of the ROF/BoS  version have been modifight / adjusted to fit.

New Propeller edition

Fabric wings redesigned
The 7 Kill Marks added by Captain Reed Chambers.

and many other things...

 

Thank you and have fun flying!

If I take a closer look at the picture,
I have to agree with you!
Thank you !
I think that's what it should look like!

 

Criticism is gladly accepted! :good:

This explains itself in the picture that these strips could be black, but are dark red

I'd be wary of trying to judge the shade of blue from looking at the old B&W photos - lots of colors were rendered very oddly in terms of lightness/darkness in those old film stocks.  The one thing that struck me about the original version (and even more so about the latest one) is that the blue seems to be too light.  If you think about it, he's obviously trying to pattern the color scheme after the American flag, so it seems almost certain that he would have used a darker blue, one more closely matching the blue in the flag itself (e.g., much more like the darker blue on the Hat in the Ring symbol, which was also drawn from the American flag).

For Compersation

STAR : red /then  white / blue /and  yellow

( Spad  XIII )  Would it be possible that the stripes are blue and not red ?

                       and the Front of Plane Red ? :russian_ru:

Take care when comparing B/W photos and trying to find the colours rendering there are multiple type of mistakes that one can make.

In some picture’s photos of the same aircraft the blue can be darker than the red and on other with a different type of film the red is the darker one?! Strange but true.

 

But in most case of airplanes we now were the red or blue is on the roundels but in early WW1 it is not Always true… :salute:

Tomi,

Ref the SPAD,  personally I would go back to the original blue in your first skin, as I agree with what Panthercules has stated in trying to replicate their National Flag colours on the AC.

 

End of the Day, it's your choice.

Lt. Harvey Weir Cook - 94th Aero Squadron

 

Good things take time! :friends:

Lt. Harvey Weir Cook - 94th Aero Squadron

Captain Weir Cook was credited with seven victories, including 4 enemy balloons and was promoted to captain in 1919.

He was honorably discharged from the 94th Aero Squadron on 2 Jun 1919 and assumed command of the 147th Aero Squadron on 18 Sep 1919.

On 26 Dec 1919 Cook was relieved of command of 147th Aero Squadron and honorably discharged.

 

Cook and Rickenbacker became friends,

known to each other as "Weird" and "Rick." Both were strong proponents of more adequate training for rookie combat pilots,

having themselves benefited from aerial combat training by Lafayette Escadrille veteran Raoul Lufbery and others.

Born June 10, 1892
Died March 24, 1943 (aged 50)

Hmmm, Thanks Tomi. 

 

That's interesting, The colour scheme looks different to the reference pictures I posted with the skin photo's.

 

And you'r right, the distance on the black and white is more than on the reference picture...…….curious which one to use?????

The blue color is this one which can be seen on top of the original hat

original from the museum.

Me and you did the same thing as using too dark blue.

 

By the reflection of the sun Looks like the bright-slick stripes are not there.
