Just to keep the pot stirred...
I think it happened much as Diego said, but when Voss had the Oberusel
engine replaced with a captured LeRhone, the cowl came off and may well
have been painted Jasta 10 yellow at that time. That's my suggestion
that both sides of the argument were correct at a given point in time.
Now someone needs to come up with a date the engines were swapped, (soon
after or before delivery to Voss at Jasta 10), that precludes what I
suggested from having happened.
