As the aircraft was for Austria, it was fitted with the 200hp Austro-Daimler engine and the Jaray propeller by Fokker at Schwerin. Also fitted were two Schwarzlose M.16 MGs. The aircraft did not perform as well as expected but was still shipped to Matyasfold in Austria, 24 Apr 1918, and given the designation '90.05'. V.22 remained a prototype as the Austrian's decided to go with MAG built Fokker D.VII's.
The MAG build D.VII's had 225hp Austro-Daimler engines and Schwarzlose MG's. None of these aircraft were delived in time for use, but were later found in Hungarain service.

That explain the different radiator then. I think that for a V22 base DVII MAG,the 1/72 scale eduard one can be use(the 1/48 scale comb doesn't have that much radiator option)
thanks!
