Kent,
You may already have looked here but just in case I am attaching a link to the "Show Us Your Fokker DR1 " thread. Some good shots showing the upper deck and axle wing. I hope this helps clarify things.

https://forum.ww1aircraftmodels.com/index.php?topic=2890.0

and from the hints and tips section. Lots of photos and methods for streaking represented:

Hi Guy's I really could use some help, identifying this type of 'Automobile'.
I guess it's a German make and model...



All info is appreciated, cheers: Kent

This will be a tough one, I have no idea.

A kwik search provided no real leads either.

As the German army used dozens of different brands of staff cars, it’s difficult to say. You only can go with the radiator. In my opinion it is an Audi 10/28 PS (Typ B). But it might be a Dixi R 10 8/24 PS as well

Yeah I know, it's seams to be almost impossible to identify this 'automobile'.

I've been looking at many of the more 'obscure' German makes of the time, comparing the radiators.

Adler, Protos, Wanderer etc...

The closest I've come are either an early N.A.G. Neue Automobil-Gesellschaft AG or the even more obscure 'Fulmina'.
I tend to think it might have been a Fulmina, although I haven't found any surviving vehicles of that make.

What I did find is another photo of the 'move' - a lot of ideas for a diorama...

Repainted the front cover with olive green. Also the axle wing, but not happy with the result, I will have to have a go at it again...



Cannot resist, at least I have to try to build a 'Jasta' Automobile.



Mostly 'freestyling' reusing bits and pieces from an old Pyro kit, crash molding and scratch...

The DR1 looks excellent with the re paint of the cowling and Axle wing. That is amazing work on the Staff Car! Should be a real beauty when completed!

Also looking forward to seeing the 'Jasta-mobile'!
Any idea how you will depict the wheels?

I am planning on doing the wire wheels like the ones in the photo.
Although most of the Jasta 'Automobiles' I have been able to dig up photos of, are fitted with wooden ones.



Now I will have to rewind it in my brain, how I did it then, 'scratching' the wire wheels for the Crossley tender...



https://forum.ww1aircraftmodels.com/index.php?topic=7145.msg131699#msg131699

I promised then, to get back to this subject eventually, describing the process.
Fortunately this time it looks like I will only need to complete 4 wire wheels, for the Crossley it was 8!
So, I will give it a go again, with resorting to the wooden wheels as a backup plan.

Lets hope it works again... Kent

First little half 'Fokker' is about done...













It's supposed to be the Fokker Dr. I of Ltn. Hans Joahim Wolff of Jasta 11. March 1918 (Serial not known)

Impressive work! The empty air screw hub is a beautiful detail.
