    1/32 Nieuport 17

    Post  Joseph on Mon Jan 04, 2010 10:39 am

    My next WWI project will be Hobbycraft's 1/32 Nieuport 17, finished as Billy Bishop mount.

    Following are pics of the 'Starter Pack' offered by Hobbycraft Smile , not much but at least outline is correct. I will up-date kit with some scratchbuilt items, PE from Tom's modelworks, a resin engine by Vector models and a new resin cowl and wheels from Master Casters.







    I have removed all wing ribs to make my own.

    Will keep you posted with progress Smile

    Looking forward to this Joe. I am sure it will be another masterpiece just like your previous build. You are getting hooked on these WWI planes.

    Already looking nice Joseph?

    But how come you chose the Nieuport for Billy's mount, the S.E.5a might look another nice ride for him ... or is the size that is a problem?

    Another option for the Neiuport might still be a colourful French or Italian fighter?

    Ray remember there is Enzo Baracca by Pegaso and a Mike Good sculpt I think [though if not mistaken he used to fly Spads]

    Good to see this one up and running - This a good kit, well worth the extra stuff, Best Billy Bishop is the ModelCellar/Mike good one,

    Joseph - has Karaya brought out there PE stuff for the SE5A yet, do you know......?

    Also Radu at RB Productions has just brought out the British Rigging set as PE, that you might want to try, it comes with turnbuckles already attached at one end, because the British Rigging was an aerofoil(Flat) but the German was round cable...... as you already know.

    Guys, this is the BENCHMARK I have to try and emulate as best as I can Sad

    It is Mike Good's Sculpt and Paint for ModelCellar's box art.

    Billy Bishop is all prompt for priming right after I start and finish Piper Mackay cheers
