red Eindecker info?
« on: February 27, 2013, 02:42:24 PM »

I was watching a show on WW1 aviation and it showed a CG Eindecker with red wings and fuselage. It looked rather stricking!  ;)

I'm wondering if this was an actual color scheme worn by this plane and if so, does anyone have any info on it? I would love to do a WNW eindecker in all red!  :)

Its hard to prove a negative, but I have never heard of a red Eindecker

If it's the same video I think it is, it was made with Rise of Flight (PC flight sim), and the scheme is spurious. Here is the skin author's poll page submitting the skin for approval for use as a fictional skin in game:

It was actually all red except for the front cowl and the markings of course. Sounds like BS then?  :(

Yup, fictional. Ronny Bar has some excellent profiles of Fokker Eindeckers in the two recent Datafile volumes
