Nope, they where gray/ black and green/ black, it was the
Allied's that was that sandy brown orange like color, but
Hey... when you get it you can paint it HOT pink if you like... :P :wink:

Re: New CK WW1 German Drachen.

Oh it appears you are right although I see many scale models painted in the Sandy Colour, and some pictures of captured French Types but the picture was just Yellow lol.

Looks very nice.
