This aircraft, Serial No. unknown, was depicted in a profile in Schlachtflieger! It was flown by an unknown pilot with Schlasta 11, and is depicted here as displaying standard Jasta 11 markings of a blue and black fuselage with thin black and white bands around the fuselage and a chevron of thin black and white stripes on the bottom of the lower wings. The aircraft also displayed a white "6" on the fuselage. In the absence of hard evidence as to exactly which engine was used in this specific aircraft, it seems reasonable to assume that any aircraft flying after the 200HP engines were introduced might have had one installed during a maintenance refit (e.g., as might happen when the original engine wore out or was damaged and had to be replaced), so I have created a version of this skin for both the 180 HP and the 200HP variants.

Excellent !
A good exemple of German "camouflage" :D

Are you sure the tail was blue too ?
It is a part of the national insigna that's why I have a little doubt.

I'm not sure of any of it independently - just going by the color profile by DSA in Schlachtflieger!, which shows it as blue. Would love to find any additional info on this one, as it's one of my favorite HCL2 paint jobs (along with the Jasta 26 flame-wagons, which I'm also partial to :) ).
