A photo of this Jasta 14 Dr.I appears on p. 58 in Greg VanWyngarden's Fokker Dr.I Jagdstaffeln (Albatros Productions), although he notes that the color of the fuselage panel is not known.

Re: Fokker for Marie

I know for that and I also have hi resolution scan of the same photo. I have work of the analogy of the Fokker Dr.I from the same unit flown by Lt. Stark. For his Dr.I is well know that he used some kind of lilac color for the rear fuselage. The color look almost identical and I decide to use this color. Important to note that there is also idea that this part is painted light blue but this is far from match with any blue color. This profile is credited by the leading WW1 researchers as the best possible reconstruction of this airplane. But impossible to say that it is correct. Too much time past away and no physical evidence remain from this airplane.

There is one factor which could work against this line of thought: the (tactical) need to quickly identify pilots in the air.

Unit markings were meant to identify the unit, but beside the personal wish to distinguish themselves, personal markings were used to identify the individual pilot in the air.

That doesn't exclude the color, but it does present one (IMHO logical) reason why B&W matching alone might not work.

I know- and there is variation of the applied marks. German pilots prefer personal markings in WW1 and in many cases they used personal color which indicate color of their town or province.

This said enough about the same quality but as well l know- from b&w images could not be give precise answer about the same color. Much have to be research in the pilot notes, memory and parallel experience with other pilot from the unit. Personal colors of the Lt. Stark Dr.I is almost identical to the personal color of this plane. Not enough but possible relation.

And how you will illustrate this problematical area?
