They are, you're not wrong. I quite like it though, but I have always been a little strange. I was very much aiming for a kind of over saturated look. I did a dogfight in that B.E.12 against an E.II shortly after that and man was he ever visible when head on. The white eindecker skin almost vanished when he turned on me once with the sun behind him though. It was almost like he turned on cloaking.
Then I put a .303 into his gas tank... and he... yeah. He didn't survive that. The B.E.12 is so strange. It's... not slow? I felt like I had every Eindecker I've messed with in QC absolutely out powered. I just wish the gunsight wasn't designed for a cowboy doing hip shooting.
