Edgar, I feel a bit guilty, because I really am not much interested in the Nieuports. I am more waiting for your Starstrutter. Bought one of your resin figures, though, hoping that this will help at least a tinylittlebit...

I have a 1:32 Raoul Lufbery and a young lion...

wait, what??? where'd you get the lion? i got the Luf (CSM, c'mon Edgar you KNOW your French ace is Luf).
Here you are... Black dog and Model Cellar. And I did a little bit of research: the size of the lion even fits August 1916, when Lufberys Nieuport 21 was photographed :)


Edgar, your decision to release the kits as limited edition is completely understandable. I didn’t mean it too serious...  :D

I would like to preorder the Nieuport XXIII, Belgian markings are sweet. I do have a question for Edgar or anyone else on here who might know. I have two $50 Visa Gift Cards, would it be possible to preorder doing that or is it just one card only? Hope I'm making sense.

Thanks,
James

Edgar, is there a chance to buy the engine sprue of the Nieuport XXI separately? The 80hp leRhone was widely in use and would be really handy for some scratch build projects....

Servus Andreas
Wie geht's?

How many engines you need?
Did you pre-ordered Nieuports?

Servus,
Mir geht es gut, und dir?  :)

Yes, I preordered a Nieuport XXI, additionally I ordered a copy of the Russian Lanchaster at the same time.

I‘d order at least three Le Rhones, if possible.

All the best,

Andreas

I am sure Edgar is super busy at the moment.  I have yet to get an email either on the two I pre-ordered (one of each).
