Bloody April and I'm locking horns with this guy, just East of Arras. I was too busy not dying (he had friends) and didn't think to hit the L key.

I thought the skin very cool. It was natural fuselage but had a thick red stripe around the cockpit.
Like Otto Von Heidemann's DVII in the Blue Max

Is this a stock skin or was my opponent an historic ace?

Thanks,
epower

Epower, if you go to the folder with all the skins and switch to thumbnails you can preview all skins. In the search bar type in "alb" to filter only Albatroses (and pilots named Albert). You can then quickly scan through all ten thousand skins "easily".

Brilliant! A most elegant solution. Thank you very much, Fullofit.

Holy Moly! Looking at your attached pic, I think that was Lothar.

Epower, have a scroll through. There is a whole bunch of similar skins with varying widths of red bands across the fuselage. Who knows. It could have been the Red Brother.
