"These decals simulate the camouflage fabric applied to German aircraft during the First World War. While usually referred to as "lozenge" by modelers today, this term is in fact a misnomer. The repeated shapes in these patterns are not lozenges (having four sides), but rather polygons (having six sides). The German term for the material was "Flugzeugstoff" or literally aircraft covering stock. However, for our marketing purposes we decided to use the familiar (though inaccurate) term "lozenge", simply for ease of recognition by the general public.

Their first releases depict five-color and four-color fabric patterns. Each come in different color tones for use on the upper and lower surfaces of aircraft.
