Title: Show us your....SPAD XIII
Post by: Jacek on June 20, 2013, 04:52:47 AM
SPAD XIII Revell kit 1/28.

Very old kit, not exactly corresponding to reality. It served me for learning preshading.

Here's my only SPAD X.III - the Eduard 1/72 kit, built straight out of the box.  This one was built back in 2007-ish and took me around a week to build.

What a group of excellent models. Very high standards of finish and very colourful schemes. The Revell kit is so old it must be growing a white beard, but you have really shown what can be done with patience and skill.

  Jacek,
Ah you just have to love those SPADS. Here's a couple of my ancient SPAD projects for your approval. First up is a SPAD XII in 1/48 scale. This was a conversion project using a Hawk SPAD XIII from the early 50's. Once completed there wasn't much of the donor kit remaining.

  Lastly a Blue Max SPAD VII.

@ Jacek:

I really like the scheme of this model, very colorful.  For sheer modeling fun, I think these 1/28 Scale kits are great.  If you don't get too wrapped around the axle over details, they are a nice model to build.

@ Brad:  Neat scheme and I like the faded colors.

@ Gregory:  Exellent craftsmanship, especially when one considers what you started with.

@Ssashoo:  Nice work.  Rigging is very nicely done.

Best

Mark

Okay, I have posted these before, but here they are again.  These first ones are the Academy/Hobbycraft SpadXIII in Barca's markings, again, had I had references they would be different.  I still like it.

a nice thread, here is my Academy 1/32 scale SPAD XIII - a custom set of decals was made to represent the aircraft flown by Lt. Sumner Sewall of the 95th Aero Squadron Nov 1918.  Thanks to an in depth conversation with Alan Toelle I got all of the details right (after three attempts lol!)  other than the color Beige, which should have more of a "pumpkin" shade to it, but there will be a lot more SPADS to come...

My latest SPAD, a full build article currently over at Internet Modeler for anyone interested in it...  This is Charles Nungesser's Spad XIII from the 1/48 scale Eduard kit, further research has shown that the red/white/blue triangle behind the cockpit should be a white triangle offset to one side, designed to confuse the opponents aim.

Definitely a fine addition to the thread, Rick.  So now we have a French and British SPAD completed and an Italian one in the works at this time.

Bravo Rick, it may be a simple scheme but it looks so good!
