Funny how much information can come forth in such a short time. A
couple of my remarks yesterday wer in error (the problem with writing
from your head instead of the book that is 10 miles away at home). As
was later pointed out Fokker D-VIs were covered with 4-color lozenge
fabric. My statements about green paint were my blurred recollection
between D-VI and D-V, two distinctly different a/c. Interestingly, both
of these a/c were used for rotary engine conversion training.

Additional reference on the Fokker D-VI is found in Windsock vol. 2
#2. This article covers model conversion using a Revell Dr-I and D-VII
kits. Here Ray Rimmel points out that the Dr-I and D-VI shared the same
fuselage. He also has drawings for markings for 3 different a/c
including a machine from Jasta 80b. Photos in this issue show variation
in strut colors (both light and dark paint) and painted "factory style"
finishes on the wheels.

Good luck with your model.
