Looking for WW1 aircraft paint scheme
Posted by CarnivourousDonut on Saturday, July 22, 2006 8:59 PM

Wasn't there a plane in WW1 whose paint scheme was mainly purple, but with some yellows as well? It was a really outlandish scheme I saw somewhere, I thought it was German, but perhaps I was wrong.

 

In any case, any sites out there where I can find paint schemes of WW1 planes?

There are two trains of thought here;

If your talking real WWI aircraft then it would be post summer 1917 Albatros D.III ( OAW  built ) and some (about half) Albatros D.V & Va types.  The two toned painted wing camouflage of these birds had dk green and mauve (pinkish purple) on the upper surfaces and varnished fuselages (warm light yellows.)  The others had the 5 colour lozenge printed camouflage.

If your talking a modern replica...there was a Siemens Schuckert D.III at Guntersville Alabama in 1992 -1994.  It was purple overall with yellow accents and I believe a yellow ta and purple tail unit.  (Yellow lion's head on the fuselage side by cockpit.)

Since you can't be more specific...thats all I can offer.

 

Stachel...unconfirmed by Armee means unconfirmed!!!!

Sorry-

 

It was during ww1, and I thought it was a german plane with crazy paints. I'll look into those you listed.

I have the box of an Eduard Albatros D.Va 1/72 here in front of me - it has the color scheme StephenLawson described. The instructions say violet / green for the wing camouflage, wood brown for the fuselage.
