Nieuport XI Twin Lewis gun mount?
« on: April 19, 2017, 12:43:43 PM »
I bought a sheet of decals for my Wingnut Sopwith Pup and it includes markings for Roderic Dallas's Nieuport XI with what looks like a twin lewis gun mount, are there any photos of this configuration anywhere on the net? Google doesnt bring up much, alternatively could anyone recommend any reference books with a good photo of the setup?, the references listed on the decal sheet mention an Australian Flying Corps webiste but I think it may have been taken down. It would be a cool model to build!

Here's a link to the old AFC site:

I had similar plans to build this a/c  but struck put on the gun mount details,so if you can find any info I would be very interested.
Cheers,
Dave.

Apologies for the threadcromancy, but a different search method produced a result! I googled the Nieuport with its serial number and bingo! Ok it doesn't give the best details on the gun mount but its a start.
