Notes:

1/32 scale

Next in Spada's Laser Line of decals is this third sheet on the Albatros D.III. Again, this is 1/32, but you can get them in other scales.

You'll notice there are two sheets with what seem to be redundant markings. One sheet is printed on white decal paper. That one has blue outlines to the insignia and other markings to show where to cut them

Four aircraft are featured, three of them with bare wood fuselages.

First up is Hans Berr's green tailed aircraft from Jasta 16 during 1917. This plane was flown by several other pilots as well. Three color camo.

Next, is a white-tailed aircraft as flown by Werner Voss when with Jasta 5 in mid 1917. Probably one of the more popular schemes for this plane.

The third option is Oblt Robert Greim's plane with Jasta 34. It is not known if the circles are red or black so both have been provided.

Finally another green tailed Jasta 5 aircraft, this time with a white painted fuselage and red spinner/wheels. This aircraft was flown by Jupp Cremer in the autumn of 1917

The back of the instruction sheet provides upper wing and tailplane camo scheme options for both the two and three color camo schemes. There are also special application notes where needed. As I mentioned in the first sheet review, it would be wise to recoat these markings prior to use, just to add that little bit of extra protection.
