Recommended Posts

Sources: "Jagdstaffel 5 Volume Two" and "Green tails until the end… Windsock International Vol.21 No4" by GK Merrill There are several colour profiles and photos in the above references witch I have tried to follow.

 

Böhm (alb) Personal marking white letter B in red band green tail with red piping.

 

Alfred Leicht (Fok) Personal marking white letter L in red green band green tails with red piping.


Josef Mai (OAW) (some details not standard OAW, possible replacements?) Personal marking white and black stripes on fuselage and elevator. 

 

Otto Schmidt (OAW) (Some info on this is unclear but definitely OAW) Personal marking black/white band green tail section. White bands top and bottom wing

 

Friederich Vollbracht (Fok) Personal marking yellow lightning bolt on green fuselage. Tail with red piping.

 

Added few examples to post. Let me know if you find any bugs!

 

EDIT: Removed skinpack for now need to make a lot of fixes

Hey Rumey,

 

The artwork doesn't look very 4K. The edges are quite blurred...not sharp at all. Might need to remake the art work at a higher resolution. Specifically the "B"on the Bohm plane and the band on the Schmitt plane

Might have gone way to far with some of the blur on this also using some older parts. Work in progress, will have to update it as I go. Thanks for the feedback. What about the wings, thought 4 tone would be correct for albatros and fokker made dvii. Did not use FC standard though and thinking of maybe borrowing the lozenge from the ones made after aviatic transfers for models.

I have a 4 colour you can use and tweek. It's based on what they used on the EV/DVIII  at the Vintage Aviator Museum in New Zeland

Have another look at the red noses as well - AFAIK the red wouldn't have extended as far back as the pilot seat (meaning the rear upward panel which the guns sits over would have been left unpainted) depending on which sources / colour plates you look at, and the shade of red itself has come out quite pink. 

If it's any help, I used the following HTML colours for skins I've worked on: 

Jasta 11 nose - 7d2020
USAS 1st Flight Nose - 821616

 

I've also seen examples which show Vollbracht's 'zigzag' having more 'peaks' or 'points' (6), but can't speak on how accurate that is.

Thank you will take a look at this as well! Some marking I managed to double as well :o: but expect a much updated version soon!

 

Letting J5 test much improved versions now. Thank you Adam for the 4 tone, looks great. If you gents downloaded other, delete as it quite frankly was not good and rushed. Now all is sharp and lots of fixes in place. If none of the gents find any more errors I will make this available again asap.

Thanks Rumey. I like the treatment you gave to the 4 colour. No filters?
