Viks, we can't have a wrong camouflage like that Actually we have an Hans Kirschtein D. I'll pull the photos when I get home just to be sure. This is hardly going to be acceptable research but I have real photographs at home. That plane belonged to Josef Mai pictured here. He is shown in a black and white dr1 though. I have also never seen a photo of Hans Kirschtein in a black and white dvii.
He again did fly in a black and white dr1. You guys might have photos of these planes though so I am not trying to say you are wrong just that I have never seen it. I would love to see what you have but you are obviously under no obligation. Dont feel like you have to prove every paint scheme to every schmuck that drops in. Indeed, that video shows Kirschstein's machine. Everything was striped--struts, wheel covers, fuselage, wings, etc.

Mai also had a striped mount as you described, but so did Neckel. Here are a couple grainy shots of him with this machine: You can see these photos and a zillion other in Greg VanWyngarden's von Richthofen's Circus, Colours and Markings of Jagdegschwader Nr. BTW, there is a shot of Kirschstein standing next to his striped D. Page Obviously I stand corrected Those are some great shots too S! JFM, great contribution, thanks for posting. We are looking for any info about WWI river shipping.
Mostly interested in western front river ships, any of them, military, civilian, transports.

VikS, I think you'll want to model the towed and motorized river barges that have navigated Europe's rivers for centuries. River and canal barges were also pressed into service by the warring nations as machine gun platforms, obstruction booms at Zeebrugge , artillery platforms outside of the ROF world though, along the Danube and in Mesopotamia , as troop ferries, and widely as hospital vessels. Popular manufacturer's would be Freycinet and Luxemotor our forum members in Europe might be able to find line drawings and more photos of the period's barges perhaps.
That is the type of river boat you should make. Barges eh? Moving barges along canals and rivers would be a nice touch, maybe even a first in flight sims! The train is totally cool, barges would be great too especially if they were "target quality", if you know what I mean. Any chance of making a link to it a sticky?
Cheers, RD. Reason: Of course now that it's a sticky nobody will read it. You have to remember still check your other sources. Examble that has Fokker D. VII weight listed wrong and thus all of its numbers that depend on weight. It melts before you get used to it. No more stickies please in this particular forum, two stickies is one too many, make a Info-Stickies forum or something sticky posts are the Devil Ming [mod] Moved the original post to the sticky, and along came the replies with it.
Just pretend you can hear me in a bad Ming impersonation saying "I mean it's really rather okay on second thought. Reason: Trying to provide context. The opinions of this poster are largely based on facts and portray a possible version of the actual events. Jimko "The older we are, the better we were!

I once got caught up in trying to figure out the glide ability of the Camel and WW1 planes in general so I have some comparative info on that as well. Perhpas I'll dig it out and post it here sometime in the future. Its a hour and a half and has some good info and some original footage, and some footage of restored planes flying. Were waiting for you! Would love to hear book recommendations--wondering what the definitive miltiary histories of the air war are? Or get this collection here it includes my Favorite mentioned above.
Here is a link to a bunch of WWI books all put together in a zip. Ps All of you! Roberts, c. Russel, c. McConnell, c.

Reece, c. Biddle, c. Bishop, c. Frederick Collins, c. Fales, c. McMinnies, c. Hmmm, for some reason the link doesn't work on this forum, but it works on thr ROF forums where I originally posted it.
Hi Ming, Hi Dart I havent been about for ages. Thanks Desode. I am getting it now. Lots of descriptions of missions from many fields to use as the basis for historical RoF encounters. They were my primary guide to finding old aerodromes now almost all returned to being farm fields when I toured the Western Front last year. But it does work. A lot of work obviously went into the data base for this map.
Hope that helps some mission builders! Does anyone have a good link for comparative information on WWI aircraft?
Some useful links above too, thanks. From Smithsonian Air and Space Magazine. We need the following information on german Gotha squadrons: - airfield locations with dates. Please help! V cockpit gauges and yes - we already had Windsock Datafile Special - but photos there are not a good guality. Please help if you have any other photos! I take it you already have this one. Auch, still gathering info on cockpit gauges?
