Eduardo Soler

FOKKER DV /EVIII WWing colors

Recommended Posts

I have a doubt. I'm finishing my Eduard DVIII / E V Fokker, and the instructions indicate that the wings are painted green. However, I have recently read that they were camouflaged with two colors (Green and brown, for the upper surfaces and blue and mauve for the lower ones). ARMA HOBBY indicates this in the instructions . On the other hand there is a rear  photo of an EV fokker (with a red or black star) whit color contrast on the wings. Is there any expert that can clarify this for me?

This was first described, as far as I know, by the late Dan-San Abbott on the Aerodrome website.  The green/brown uppers, and light blue/purple unders, were made by staining the wing plywood in diagonal bands.  I can't provide a link from my phone but wi try to do so later.
