It is an excellent idea, I really liked it. Now I would very much like an article (for lack of a better word) to go with it, explaining how he has printed it: tissue(s) used, printer, technique, etc. Yes, I do remember seeing such articles occasionally in the hobby press, and have a rough idea how it is done but this would not come amiss. One question, if I may. The 4-colour lower surfaces colours seem a little pale when compared with the fabric I saw and photographed at Old Warden - which one is right, I wonder?? Anyway, excellent work - and excellent idea on your part to include it.

Great feedback Arnaldo, many thanks. Daithi - any chance of that article?!

The Old Warden example is a 'restored' one. The only definitive D VII with lozenge fabric is at Knowlton in Canada; it's the only unrestored D VII in the world. There's a good collection of photos of that here: www.aerofile.info/wordpress which also shows the "hier anheben/hier nicht anheben" ("lift/donít lift here") markings. There's a lot of detail on that that gets overlooked. Unfortunately, the Morell ASI (the anemometer) is missing, but the offset fin and windshield are there (again, often overlooked details, especially the 'cutout' at the bottom right of the windshield). But keep in mind that fabric dyes do fade, especially in the open air. The Old Warden example, while it does use printed fabric (made with modern dyes) hasn't been exposed to the elements. To print on tissue Ė overlap a sheet of standard paper with the tissue (use a photomount adhesive to 'fix it on the back of the sheet) and just run it through. You may need to join sets to fill an A4 and/or an A3 sheet but any decent graphics app will let you do that.
