The back page of Profile Pub #132 has a shot of a "Turkish" Fokker D-VII
which is a converted Tiggie.   The text also states that two other airframes
were converted to Rumpler C-Vs.

Mike asks:

"Which leads me to the next question: you film buffs, was the "German" plane
that bombed the Sharif and minions in Lawrence of Arabia a Tiger Moth?  A
Puss Moth? A Stampe?  A Buecker?  Anyone have a photo so I can modify the
Tiger Moth to match the movie's plane?"

 

Mike,

 

      Good question that I have wondered myself.  I watched Lawrence of
Arabia the other night when it was on Turner Classic Movies and was
specifically looking at the Turkish planes to see if they were modified
Tiger Moths.  I don't know for sure, but I really think that they were.
Perhaps someone on the "List" with more knowledge of the subject will chime
in.
