As a machine taken over by the Dutch, recovering (of the damage that brought it down?) and or repainting is likely, so any combination is possible. It looks to me that the cowl has been stripped to bare metal as well.

    Any opinions on the photo at this link?  http://ipms.freeforums.org/post2616.html#p2616 

    The poster is asking , among other things, what colour the top wings should be. He thinks CDL, I think not, unless they recovered the wings (not impossible, because they seem to have done that to the rudder, to remove the cross, although it could be paint. Why I don't think CDL is because Fokker built machines, from my reading of the Datafile, had typical Fokker streaky camo as on the fuselage here, if early, and then got disruptive camo if later production. And this is a machine from September 1917. I think any camo pattern on the lower wing has been washed out by the same glare you see on the top of the fuelage. 

    The other unexplained bit is the light area at the bottom of the fuselage sides behind the lower wing - either it's CDL and the fuselage streaks are painted over a darker colour, or the lower fuselage has been painted a light colour. Messily. 


    Any ideas, please?
