XII in museums and one has a brass radiator, two have aluminum and one has alum. tubes whit the top looking like it is brass. Like so may other things on our favorite subject OT aircraft hardly anything is an absolute.

>> Thank you for the comments on the Pfalz D.XII.  As far as the color of the radiator, I believe that I read somewhere that while the prototypes and early examples had the brass radiator, the production aircraft that were assigned to front line service had the radiators coated or painted in an aluminum finish.  I don't believe this information is in the Datafile but thought I came across it in the information sheet that comes with the Wingnuts kit (online).  However, in looking, I've not been able to find this information again so for the moment, have nothing to back this up.  The color pictures that I researched, both of the Canberra Pfalz (2600/18) and the one being restored in France (2690/18) both showed the radiator color as aluminum.  However, I know this isn't indicative to materials or colors as they might have appeared in 1918.
