'Forget me not', or 'Remember me yet' I have heard his slogan painted on the middle wing translated as both.
What ever it was it was a bold statement. Here's the place marker for my build.

All the best.

I always think it was daft to have the message in German and readable from the rear; was it for his squadron mates who were bouncing him? or for the enemy he was about to get?

I have altered the title after some research into the translation. Apparently it is Swabian dialect, and Kempf's usual greeting to comrades he hadn't seen for a while.

All the best.

Be aware that Kempf had at least 2 Dr1, possibly even three, each painted slightly differently

Cheers for the info Fred. I will certainly check my references. May end up with a 'representative' build depending on the decals.

All the best.

Were they all painted in the standard green streak?

Yes, as far as I can see they were in standard DR1 streaky green, but a bit more soild than on some DR1s
The differences were in
the style of the wing writing,
the style of the K on the fuselage,
the presentation of the K, on a coloured block or not,
which half of the tailplane was white or black,
the underside of the tailplanes; the same as the top or counter painted or painted black/white at all,
whether the rudder had a black edge or not

Sorry V V. Not had chance to attack the plastic on this yet. Hopefully later today I will get some bench time in.

All the best.

Well. The gloves are off. Here is the sprue shot. To be honest I don't have a clue what kit this is.it was in the box with an Airfix Jaguar kit I bought at a show from under the table.

All the best.

Greg

Just a quick update to prove I haven't forgotten about this. Started on the painting. I think this is the Revell kit but I am not sure as there are no instructions. Can anyone let me know please?

All the best.

Greg

I'll check tomorrow; my DR1 kits are in my storage unit.
Do you need the instructions if it is?

It does look like the newest Revell kit

Yup, my Revell frames are exactly the same
What does it say on the wee panel by the tail planes part? Mine says Revell on it
PM me an email address and I'll send quality scans of the instructions
