You probably already know that the Omaka Collection contains five Fokker DR.1 Triplane replicas. One of these aircraft is the locally-built Tantrum/Lanham example ZK-FOK. This one carries the lettering 'Fok. Dr1 152' on the fuselage.
The other four are imported replicas, with registrations ZK-JOB ZK-JOC ZK-JOG and ZK-JOK. There are no external registrations carried on these aircraft, and I'm trying to find out which is which. I am told that the yellow one carrying the K on the fuselage is ZK-JOG.
This leaves: - black engine cowling, black and white stripes on fuselage just forward of fuselage parte-cross German insgina, parte-cross on tailplane - red engine cowl, two thick red stripes around fuselage just forward of plain cross German insignia, plain cross on tailplane. Has '2189' painted in small letters low down on tailplane. - black engine cowl, black and white stripes on fuselage from cockpit area right back to tailwheel, plain German cross on fuselage and tailplane. Has '2256' painted in small letters low down on tailplane.
Any help in sorting this out would be appreciated.
