I've always thought this was a pretty plane. the "klinker" construction on the fuselage was odd but reminded me of Viking long boats. Definitely appropriate in those mid 1918 scenarios with some Fok D7s but still Alb DVs and triplanes around, before the D7's production really caught up. And a lot of 'famous' planes were made in numbers like this-- about the same number as the Fok triplane for example. 350 is a fair amount for the Germans. Thanks
