    Polish Air Force was formed in November 1918 to 1.XII.1918 used different identification marks in Warsaw, Lwow and Krakow.
    In Krakow, it was a red letter Z on white field, in Lwow white-red stripes, in Warsaw shields and wheel divided obliquely to the color white and red.
    Two years ago, we found a photo that inspired my to bouild this model. It was a next variant of the Warsaw markings white-red roundels similar to the markings of Denmark.
    In spring 1919 the aircraft have still a mixed of Warsaw and German markings.
    Some examples drawn by my friend Wojtek Sankowski
    Warszawa markings:


    Lwow:

    on the fuselage new markings comformable to the order from 1.XII.1918 on ruder and wings the old Lwow version.
    Krakow:

    Markings comformable to the order from 1.XII.1918
