In ROF I have always flown DV.a's and Dr.1's with the early "Blacktail" Jasta 12 default skin.  Several months ago a friend got me started working on a personalized skin for the game and here's a model showing what I came up with.

 

The name of Todt's triplane is "Dreifacher Arger" (German for "Triple Trouble".)

 

Basically, it's just Jasta-12 early default with a black trident on the fuselage and a black engine cowling.

 

The model is frame and fabric construction, 1/16th scale, wingspan 18 inches.

 

Enjoy!

Danke!  

 

This was based on Authentic Models #AP 208 Fokker triplane which arrives pre-built, nylon skin on wooden frame, painted red and white.  The prop spun but the Oberursel did not.  I fixed that.

 

I also considered cowling colors and finally opted for gray. 

 

So: TVO's Dr.1 skin is basically a default J-12 early "Blacktail" in streaked camo with black trident on the fuselage; medium gray cowling and leading edges.  Final.  

 

Here's a pic of the model with the prop and engine turning together.  

 

Prosit!   :icon_e_salute:

The skin for Todt Von Oben's triplane "Dreifacher Arger" (Triple Trouble) evolved from an ROF early default Jasta 12 "Blacktail"  in camo with old-style crosses.  I wanted the emblem to send a message but not be too ostentatious.  I chose the simple black trident because (1) it would have been easy to paint by hand in the field 100 years ago; (2) it maintains the "triple" concept; and (3) the trident is a traditional weapon of the ancient gladiators, and in some ways I think WWI aviators were like "gladiators of the sky."  The gray cowling was done for camouflage against tail gunners.  Black is really not good camouflage in a daylight sky; too distinct.  And white is reflective so it also gives a gunner a fairly good target.  But medium gray seems to blend (on a brightness scale) with most sky conditions, so that's what I decided on.  Prosit!   :icon_e_salute:
