Ahh! I have never seen both Dr1's. The two years I have been there ('93 & '94)
the only Dr1 around was the Warner. The paint job bythe way was apparently
completed earlier this year! Got some great photos for my soon-to-be 1/6th

I know for a long ime Cole would not fly an all red Dr1. He thought to highly
of Von Richtofen to fly a replica of his plane. Hence it's yellow color for
many years. Once he painted it red, he put Voss' "face" on the cowel.
