pre-printed/colored German "Losenge" camouflage?


Who supplies pre-printed German camou fabric for model use?? W hat scales and weights are available????

I want ,to build a 1/6 scale Fokker WWI type, either a biplane or a triplane. So the question is: Do I cut out more ribs ? Or, do I want to get into printing my own lozenge covering material?

TIA

Arizona Models makes it. Here is a link to their catalog: https://www.dropbox.com/s/6k4bugfwms...talog.pdf?dl=0
Prices are in the twenty dollar range per foot. Its not cheap but seems to look right and its available in different scales and number of colors in the lozenge.

WOW! Extra ribs then. I can simulate olive green streaks on clear doped silk or double silkspan in any ascale!

Several designs used a mauve and green combination that wouldn't be too hard to paint but the lozenge camo does look pretty cool. If you had access to a vinyl cutter, you could possibly be able to program it to cut friskit paper in the shapes to let you paint your own lozenge camo. What airplane are you wanting to model?

Hmm, a Fokker from WWI. I don't recall seeing the lozenge used on the Dr1 off hand so the streaky olive would be appropriate. The D.VII, definitely did use the lozenge camo in many instances. Other than that, the only other Fokker biplane I can recall was the D.VI. Not a pretty airplane but it your choice not mine. If you go with the parasol D.VIII, you're back to the lozenge camo mostly.

The prototype Fokker DVIIs featured the same streaky finish as the Dr1s.

Some DVIIs had the fuselage finished in a streaky finish though the wings had the lozenge camouflage, Emil Thuy's aircraft for example.

GTM is out of anything but 1/3rd fabric. Try spoonflower and search lozenge. I ordered some on linen and it looks great.
