Excellent shot Deacon. I like the damage.

Sandbagger, somehow I doubt it! salute

Hi Deacon211,

Interesting skin you have done, The original skin looks like actually from Woff Heinrich Gontermann´s albatros dv from jasta 15. Where you got the reference picture for the skin? I mean was there some profile picture of the Max Muller´s last aircraft?

Hey Paarma,

Sorry, I missed this post.

That's a good eye. Gontermann is the original owner of the paint job!

Max Mueller is (or was) my Centenary DiD pilot. He is completely fictional. Just for fun, I paint up a skin for my pilots. But as I would never have the skill to create a camo like this from scratch, I generally take a historic skin that has some area for personalization (i.e. a blank fuselage or a band that I can put something on) and edit it. For instance, Max didn't get to keep this skin for long so I decided to make it the skin of my "N" pilot whose name escapes me at the moment.

Rather than redoing the letter thing I went for a runic symbol this time. Trying to avoid any that have connections to Nazis, neo or otherwise. Went for the traditional meaning of "Strength and honor through sacrifice" as being appropriate to a German pilot of the time.

As always, hats off to Lou, OvS, and any others that have painted the original skins...they are magnificent.

Now if I could find some time to get back to DiD. wink

Then I have you to thank for all the hard work! This is a beautiful skin...one of the more unusual and complex in the sim.

Thanks for your efforts!

Deacon

Thank you Deacon,

im glad you like em. Yes one of my favorite too. I like the albatros because there is so many different paint schemes and camos that pilots used.

Cheers

Arto
