That was me, and the word was incorrect. (some part had an incorrect dimension)

BTW, the (cover/catalog art) painting for the Pfalz is of the same aircraft
pictured in the center of page 30 of Albatros' "WW1 Airplanes Vol.1" and
identified as D.III 1386/17 flown by Staffelfuhrer Leutnant Alfred Lenz of
Jasta 22 in Aug 1917. In fact if you take the photo, add a pilot, a
Sopwith Camel, and drop the earth a few thousand feet, you have the
painting exactly!
