 Out of date, new skin here:

 

 

Rudolf Matthaei became the commanding officer of Jasta 46 in December 1917. Matthaei may have preferred the Pfalz over the Albatros D.V although during a mock dofight in April 1918, he spun in and crashed. While the exact markings are unkown, there is a possibility that it was black and white chevrons near the cockpit similar to those seen on some other Jasta 46 and Jasta 5 albatrosses.

Pfalz D.IIIa of Hans Lutteroth, Jasta 7.

The crosses on his machine were partially repainted when he crashed this machine.

 

 

 

AWESOME historical example of this! I knew that the Germans 'painted over' the old crosses with the newer style, but I'd never seen an example of one mid-paint until now!

Hans Bohning used two Pfalzes during his tenure as the commanding officer of Jasta 79b. The first is of an unknown serial number.

The second is D.IIIa 8170/17

I like your 5 colour lozenge. Is that taken from the CLII?

There is only one black and white photo of this machine, and no unit details are known for this pfalz. I am confident the stripes are black, but the color of the chevrons and diamond pattern are a guess on my part.

The nose design surely must be white and blue - the diamond are painted in the very distinctive Bavarian style:

I'm fairly certain they're not white and blue. Based on the photo in the reference book (which the publisher wont let me post here, annoyingly) the squares are darker colors

👌👍  I fly the Pfalz a lot more because of your excellent skins.  Thank you and keep them coming, please.
