ATT32270 Fokker DVII (mid-OAW built) Jasta 65 "Seven Swabians" Ltn. Alfred Bäder
The ever-popular "Seven Swabians" scheme of Ltn. Alfred Bäder of Jasta 65.
The story did not have a happy ending for the villagers of the story and so what the message was behind this choice of marking is unclear.
Colours of the villagers clothing is conjectural but details have been faithfully replicated from the superb photographs featured on the website www.buddecke.de which, sadly, I can't share here.
Three sheet decal set, including fuselage, tail and 4 colour "lozenge" wing set ATT32173 with linen rib tapes.
Match the colour of the tail to paint metal cowlings, with the cowling forward of the cockpit retaining its original OAW lilac and green painted, random lozenge shapes.
Cowlings were often removed by this unit to aid cooling of volatile phosphorous ammunition.
Add resin cowling sets ATTRES 042 or 046 convert any WNW DVII to OAW cowling configuration.
Note : there are other differences in cockpit details, cowlings that comparison of WNW instructions will illuminate.
