Default Was this a real Fokker Dr.1 color scheme

Can anyone tell me if the black and yellow checkerboard color scheme was ever a real Fokker Dr.1 color scheme. I've looked all over the internet and a few Fokker sites. All I can find is a reference to a plane flown in the movie "The Great Waldo Pepper" using it; but nothing about an actual WWI Fokker with it. thanks.

I think it was Pepper only. It use to be at Champlain but I think it is where the Spruce Goose is now.

As a docent at the Evergreen Air Museum, home to the Spruce Goose, I can tell you that the Waldo Pepper tripe is nit there.

I would say no.

Keep in mind if you want to do a competition scale model, you can model it after the Waldo Pepper aircraft. You just need proper documentation.
You will have a scale aircraft of the plane flown in the movie.

As far as a DR1 flown in combat during the war, I do not think this one was. Lolo was basically a play on Ernst Udet Lo. In fact that charchter was basically him.

I thought all the Champlain planes went to Evergreen. Hmm, I wonder where it went? That was a great collection.

http://www.museumofflight.org/ The collection is here but Lola is not listed. Unless the Dr1 they have is repainted.

This from a post on the Aerodrome Forum in 2005.



"When Kermit Weeks in Florida bought what was left of the Tallmantz Collection (late '80s?) he got the Triplane, the Camel, and the Stampe and Tiger Moths that were used for Waldo Pepper. Also a Standard J-1 and some of the other stuff. The Camel and Triplane went to Tony Bianchi in England, who still flies the Camel (recent Stella Artois beer commercial), but the Triplane was said to be poorly built, and ended up in a museum somewhere, seems like it was far away like Singapore or someplace like that. "
