I've just finished Fritz Jacobsen "hippy" skin for Albatros D.III which he had apparently "put on" his airplane in June-July 1917. Source of information

Wow! that's cool! Wanted to do this one myself.THX!!!
I believe though, that the dark brown you have there should mauve(lilac) instead. Most early Albs were pale green, dark green and reddish brown. Then, as specified in the April,12th 1917 Idflieg Directive, reddish brown was removed entirely at the manufacturer (with pale green and dark green being used for batches 600/17 to 649/17, and then later, pale green, dark green and lilac and finally dark green and lilac.This dark green/liliac problem was my biggest consern. The source says that the airplane's number was 2090/16, which Herr Jacobsen flew long time before….so I've suggested that this airplane got early camo, inspite the one showed at the first picture. Maybe somebody can provide more sufficient information? I'd gladly return camo which was in template.

… I should have said, the stippling effect on the fuselage. Sorry to confuse.
Stippling = (Fine Arts & Visual Arts / Art Terms) to apply paint, powder, etc., to (something) with many light dabs.
Here are some good links. Dan San Abbott is a world renowned researcher of WW1 aircraft. You see his name mentioned alot in these circles. He's pretty much "the guy". See these links. They are models done according to his drawings.Thx, dudes!!!!
Looks like you might need to redo the colours and wing camo design

Hey looking good!….THX!!!!
… it's hard to see in the photo…. is the left half of the horizontal stabilizer pale green or dark green?pale green
PS: I'm surprised that Womenfly2 didn't mention to change the colour of the tires to cream/light gray
Apparently all german planes had light gray/cream tires and didn't go to black until after the war.
