Excellent work Max !
I'm fascinated to find out how you decern the correct colours of aircraft from a series of greys in the original photographs.......

Apart from the identity of it's pilot how do you know is this aeroplane is RED ?

Thank you Alfie. I am happy that you like the skins.  ]cheers[

To answer your question, the information I have used to paint these aircraft comes from numerous sources.
Information from well known books (Osprey, Windsock Datafile, etc. etc. - I can post them all if you need to see),
information from actual letters and diaries written in World War One, describing the colors used on these airplanes,
and from information collected over the years from notable aviation historians which have also posted their comments
about these airplanes over at the http://www.theaerodrome.com/forum/

One of the most trust worthy historians who has done in-depth research about these WW1 fighters is a guy named Dan_San_Abbott.
I have crossed-referenced many of the information I have collected over the years about these airplanes, and seen what he has to say
about them, and he is "spot-on" on his research and comments too. So we both share a common interest in these classic WW1 aircraft.

But still, none of us can be 100% percent sure as to these findings we made. There is ALWAYS new information being discovered and
we must take a second look into (and cross-reference again) all the information we have.
After looking at thousands of black and white photos and knowing what color some of those objects seen on photos were painted in, a person can
distinguish to a certain degree of certainty, as to what were the other colors used on an airplane. It can be a very good "guess", but this is not entirely
100% correct. After all, it is still a black and white photo we are looking at, and the colors used could have been many color tones. So cross-referencing
information from many sources is helpful. That is why I am taking a little longer to paint these skins, so I can try to use the correct colors on them.

As for the EXACT colors, that is something we all are still unsure. There over a million colors and tones and combinations in colors, so I have
tried my best to also cross reference color tones information from many sources. Factory made colors, Fabric samples from museum aircraft,
and pieces of aircraft parts from private collections which people have in their possession. Souveneirs from WW1 crashed airplanes.

The most dificult question to answer pertaining the "Red BaronĀ“s" exact RED color. That is dificult to answer. The color red also has a million
tones and color combinations. But looking at the factory color catalogues from WW1 years a person can make a very good guess as to
what they may have looked like.

For example, here is a post from another forum, which asks , " What colour WAS the factory finish on the Fokker Dr1 "
http://www.theaerodrome.com/forum/showthread.php?t=46221
This is just one of the many posts and information a person must read about and make their own cross-reference with other information
and come to a conclusion as to what is the correct colors on that airplane.

I love to do this type of research.
I love history and aircraft, and for me , this is my "type of good times".   ]cheers[
