Initial condition.

I am looking forward to your build. I have one of these in the Stash so I will learn from your build.

Is time to show my progress with Nieuport.

Parts from the interior of the aircraft's fuselage were cut and prepared for painting.







Aircraft fuselage halves and side frames have been painted in wood color. The canvas on the back of the plane's fuselage is HGW decals, I did it because I wanted to see how it looks and in the future I can use it.



In my opinion, the pilot's chair should be correct and I did it on the basis of the photo.









I prepared the other parts of the cockpit, but the control column broke and will need to be done again.

Hi Adam,
This is looking to be a great build.
I built the SH Nieuport 11 Bebe and have a full build PDF on my site (link below) if you're interested.
The aircraft are similar and there's information and mods that you may find interesting.
The PDF is in Gallery 1 - double click to read or download,

This break was longer than I thought.  :-\
Currently, the interior of the fuselage is finished.
I modeled on the cockpit of Nieuport 11.
I made a fuel gauge, oil pressure gauge and clocks.







For clocks from cockpit I used decals from Airscale, the ones visible in the picture are already corrected, unfortunately I did not take a picture.
Now fuselage was glued and it will be grinding.
