In the Lozenge 101 link, it is suggested that factories were inconsistent with lozenge application techniques. Sometimes they were applied cord-wise, sometimes 45 degree, other times every other panel was flipped vertically so the thrust angle alternated forward and aft (cookie-cutter).


I decided to apply the cord-wise, cookie-cutter application. Upper lozenge is based off of Allan Tolle's five-color interpretation.

Belly lozenge five-color is based off of Fubar's Methuen color charts for DFW

Nice work, but as constructive criticism (I couldn't even begin to do anything like this!) the fuselage and tail crosses don't look thick enough to me, in comparison to the photo?

Ya Dub, what are you trying to pull on us with this skin… You took all that time to make this free skin for us and then make the crosses to thin…… What the heck is wrong with you man?!?!?!?!

Another late war DFW. Happy day thanks.
Not sure about Branwell's point might be the angle. Maybe thicken the fuselage cross a pinch is all at most? I still would use it gladly and give a Yes vote as is.
