Thanks for the input Steve. I think you're right about a grayish shade to the German CDL. Now to find a paint that will match that.
Having looked at the styrene it sure looks like a pretty easy build. I've built 2 Albies, the LVG and the Pfalz DXII and they've all been easy enough except where I've made my usual mistakes. I'll try and keep everyone posted on my progress.

The Eindecker landed today just 7 days after I
placed my order. Looks right nice too. I still have a question
regarding the suggested WNW color scheme regarding Ol' Ernie's
#105. They call for a gray color, it has traditionally been
shown as "beige," cdl or anyone else care to guess. Any
I recall a discussion on the List, last century, where different
countries had different shades of CDL due to the different species
of Flax in the various countries used to make the linen. German Flax
was supposed to give a grayish CDL. Then I have seen B&W photos
of German CDL that looks a very translucent white, though that may
be due to lighting at the time of the photo and the airplanes were
Albatros, not Fokker. Sorry that's not any definite help.
Having slogged through the 1/32 Battle Axe E.III, I'll be real
interested in how these WNW kits go together. Please keep us posted
on your progress when you start
