5 skins representing factory finished OAW built Albatros DIII's . OAW built air-frames were finished slightly differently to standard built DIII's no rust brown paint was used , as per a directive from the air ministry in April 1917, so the 2 tone camoflage was applied, also different to the standard Albatri the camouflage was symmetrical, and also hard edged, rather than diffused.
I have tried to represent 2 camouflage in Green/Mauve and Green/Green , the second scheme is speculative, as it seems the Green/Mauve was more prevalent, also on the Green/Green I have made the tail cam lead -trail and not tip - tip as was more common on OAW machines, I have seen pictures of OAW machines with fore aft tail plane schemes, but that may have been a field mod done on the Jastas, but anyhow done them any how. So the Green/Green, and the Green/Mauve are mirror images of each other ( you will see what I mean when you load them up )
Finally I have redone the Lozenge, as I am fed up with seeing the manky dirty lozenge scheme that comes as standard with the in game Albatri, I have utilised a lighter day scheme, re done the rib tapes, etc etc etc.......anyhow, hope these aircraft fit the bill, nice clean, fresh out of the box, so not weathered at all, so if you prefer the dirty used look, please go ahead and dirty 'em up, they are a blank canvas after all.
Oh yeah, just repainted the upper fuselage metal bits, in the standard grey green, also the struts.
