    I started putting the Eagle Strike four color Lozenge Camo on this old Monogram Fokker D-VII kit as an exercise leading up to a build of the Roden Gotha V mit Nach Lozenge and the Wing Nut's LVG C.VI. So far it's been going well. I've learned a good deal about applying large areas of decal film. Glad that I started with this kit instead of the Gotha Monster! The reinforcing strips are a pain to get straight. You can come back and re-wet them, however then move them around. Don't put the setting solution on them until you are sure they're right.

    I picked this aircraft because it had the least obtrusive markings, a simple yellow nose and tail.

    The Pilot was Carl August Schonebeck, C.O. of the yellow nosed Jagstaffel 33. As one of Richtofen's students he went on the command the 33rd and survived the war. No mean feat in itself! He died in 1989, the last survivor of the Richtofen Geschwader.

    I did not have the stencil shown on the aircraft's sides so I made one in my VectorWorks CAD program (see below). Much searching for fonts ensued.

    I made the "White 7" by cutting strips of white decal film. It took two layers to cover the yellow.

    Hi Gregmix,
    looks really good up to now!
    Maybe you should set it into the "work in Progress" area.....

    I have finally fininshed! It takes a great deal of decal work, but it was fun and worth it.

    Now for that Gotha by Roden!

    And two more close ups. Note the stencil on the fuselage for Carl-August von Schonebeck of yellow nosed Jasta 33.
