German camouflage of WW 1 at Deutsches Technikmuseum
As Wingnut Wings is pumping out beautiful models for all interested in airplanes of World War 1 era, it might be of some interest to see how they actually looked like. Or at least what the colours were like. I found some photos from the Detutsches Technikmuseum in Berlin in my files. First should be underside of daylight plane, second is upperside of daylight plane, third is for use on marine planes, fourth is for night use. Number one and two are reproductions from 1990, three and four are labeled 1918.The pattern was printed, not brush painted, in standard patterns repeating itself every so often. Fifth photo is from a Halberstadt CL.IV used as a civilian airliner after the war. Tail and stabilizer are from an LVG C.VI, rudder is from an LVG B.III. If you have ANY interest in things mechanic and you hapen to be in Berlin for a day, DTM is the place to go. You could spend many days here. Just the airplane collection is fantastic, and the rest is amazing also. More information at http://www.sdtb.de/The-Museum.624.0.html
