This latest release
features four different Fokker D.VII's. This is Part 4 of a series dealing
with the Fokker D.VII in German markings from June 1918 to November 1918.
4 aircraft include a very colorful selection of paint schemes and some have some
sort of artwork.
D.VIIF 4348/18 of Jasta "Boelche", possibly flown by Ltn. Paul
Blunk (3 victories), Lenz by Mons airfield, November 1918. This
aircraft features a 4 color lozenge pattern and a white tail with the Berlin
Coat of Arms on the side of the fuselage.
D.VIIF (O.A.W.) 4449/18 flown by Vizeflugmeister Franz Mayer (4 victories),
MFJ III, Jabbek, August / September 1918. This aircraft has a white
fuselage with black diagonal stripes on the side of the fuselage with a
yellow nose, elevators and wheels. The wings are covered in a 4 color
lozenge pattern. It is quite the striking paint scheme. The
fuselage cross might be yellow or gray...both color crosses are included.
D.VIIF 323/18F flown by Vizefeldwebel Willy Gabriel, Jasta 11, Beugneux
airfield in late June 1918. This aircraft has a very colorful red,
yellow and blue paint scheme and a (4 color?) lozenge pattern on the
wings. This aircraft is a fine example of the colorful paint schemes
used by the Germans late in the war.
D.VII (O.A.W.) 2188/18 (?) flown by Ltn. Hans Korner, Jasta 19, Mesnil/Bruntel
airfield, early July 1918 to Tichemont Airfield September 1918.

color?) lozenge pattern on the wings. This aircraft has big artwork on
the side of the fuselage.

The quality of these decals is of
very good quality. The decals themselves are clearly printed and in
perfect register. Many of the stripes are included as decals to make
things easier for the modeler. Lifelike
developed a good connection at acquiring excellent reference photos etc of the
aircraft on their decal sheets and their instruction sheets are always loaded
with fascinating stories and helpful reference info.
With the 100th
anniversary of WW1....there is a renewed fascination among modelers with
the aircraft used in the Great War and this decal sheet helps to satisfy
that yearning among modelers to explore those early aircraft. I love
this decal sheet and other decal sheets from Lifelike
