It's too bad the Rhinebeck plane used the wrong lozenge pattern on the wings. Gupi did a much better job.

Yup it was re-painted a few years back.

Not a true interpretation of the original aircraft. If you look at what Gupi has drawn the artwork is much better than what has been added to the OR machine.

Frank I also took a picture of your DVa. Rhinebeck had one in your colors in full scale and Balsa USA had their 1/3 scale done in the same pattern.

Gupi. Sorry I was not clear. Yeah the minute I saw it I told my son I need to photo this one for Gupi on RcGroups.

Thanks, but mine is actually a D.III, not a D.Va, and only the fin and rudder have the Bavarian blue and white diamond patterns. Not sure if the D.Va in the photos was flown by the same pilot.
