How do these compare with the replica D-VII at Rhinebeck? I have been
told that the Rhinebeck replica does not EXACTLY match Schuetzel's
craft? If they are close enough this might be a good starting point to do
an enlarged decal/marking for a 1/5 scale ship. How about the shield
just behind the cockpit? Do they include this one also?
