If I was to recreate them again I would go for khaki vorwerk, similar to the platinum vorwerk in my avatar.

 

You don't need vorwerk (vorwerk started out as a large fowl dual purpose breed in Germany).

Silver lakenvelder is good enough. When you use any red enhanced dom.white based red pyle you already have the gold factor.

thats because homozygous dun can look like dominant white and wont dilute the Red color as much as the Double dose of dominant white...

If I were to use this Silver Lakenvelder 

 

 with an RIR hen, what kind/color would I end up with?

 Just an old dog learning new tricks.

There are no golden Lakenfelder (this is the german writing style) in the european Standard.

Vorwerk are created as a dual breed and according to the european/german Standard the roosters are 750 gram heavier as the Lakenfelder, and the hens 500 gram. The (original large version) Vorwerk Chicken is based on Lakenfelder, buff Ramelsloher (the white version is similar to Bresse) and buff Orpington.
