Lozenge is not a question!
For this sheet lozenge is not required. There was a small batch of the early Alb. D.V series that came to the front in a coat of overall silbergraŁ - aluminum powder in the dope carrier. It was much like the finish of the up and coming Pfalz D.III. Some of these airframes wound up in Jasta 15, 31 & 37. In some cases they had the two toned sprayed camoufage on the wings and horizontal tail units and the silbergraŁ was limted to the fuselage. In other cases the entire airframe was painted in the silbergraŁ.
