Herr Fokker D.VII for the winter/indoor season, help with paintschemes please!
I´ve bought a Herr Fokker D.VII rubberpowered freeflight kit to convert to R/C for this indoor season. I´m not 100% decided on the motor yet but it will be either a CD-Rom or a GWS IPS (or similar) drive and suitable ESC. The rest of the setup will be: 250 or 450 2s Lipos, 3,4gram servos, MZK Penta 3gram Rx. Should give a nice low AUW if I build the kit correctly. I´ve read the conversion threads regarding this kit, and since I have a couple of previous FF to RC conversions under my belt, I foresee no huge problems with the conversion itself.
I´ll be using tissue for covering even though I´m aware that there are other materials out there that are easier to work with. I´ve made this choice for sentimental reasons mainly, it was ages since I last built a rubberpowered stick and tissue scalemodel, and I´m looking forward to doing it.
Now to my dilemma. I´m not going to do a lozenge scheme, because I´m lazy. I´ve searched the net, and found several pictures of non-lozenge schemes, but not very detailed. I´d aprecciate if anyone has links to or photos/3-views of such schemes at hand.
Also, one of the schemes that I know I have seen before, but was unable to find now was the Swiss white overall with white crosses on a red background. I believe this was a post WW1 paintscheme, though I´m not 100% sure about that.
Another scheme which I am contemplating is the plane which Herrman Göring flew to Sweden post WW1 which was later used by the swedish airforce (see attached pictures in the "Göring" scheme and after the Swedish Air Force repainted it). The Swedish scheme has a strong historical connection which appeals to me, but on the other hand it is rather "bland".
Okey, enough said. If you can help me out finding a nice scheme which doesn´t contain lozenge camo then I´d very much aprecciate it.

I've got one of these in the "pile" too. I'm planning on using a GWS LPS-B2C setup on 2s 145, 160, 210, or 250mAh Lipo. Ratio depending on the prop size I want to swing. I'm figuring that if the plane won't fly on one of these, it's too heavy for indoor anyway.

Do a Google Image search on Jasta 18. They used red and white colors with black markings. The Raven and Chicks was a common scheme. We have them in our decals file. Download our Fokker DVII decals and reduce them for the smaller Herr kit.
