ATT32283 Fokker DVII (OAW mid) Jasta 23 Uffz. Hans Kleinschrod
I am indebted to Bruno Schmäling (who often graciously shares information with me) for the publication of one of the finest WW1 aviation reference books ever published : "Royal Bavarian Jagdstaffel 23" published by Aeronaut Books.
This wonderful publication gives detailed information and numerous photos of the various machines of this unit and greatly informed a number of new Aviattic decal sets.
Our "lozenge" pattern and the pale blue comet has been painstakingly matched to the photos of this aircraft languishing with countless others in storage hangars post-war. I chose a typical "Bavarian" tone of blue rather than the darker version in the books profile section, which would be lost against the almost psychedelic 4 colour "lozenge" covered fuselage.
Note : tapes appear typically light in tone. I have interpreted this as pale blue but could equally have been natural linen or pink, express your preference, if you have one, when you order.
