Need help with Nieuport 28 instrumentation
« on: December 19, 2019, 10:47:02 AM »
According to Windsock Datafile 36, the Nieuport 28 had only three instruments - rev. counter, fuel sight gauge and oil pulsator.  I'm building the Roden 1/48 model and want to get the instruments right.  Can anyone point me to a photograph or diagram of these 3 instruments?  Thanks.

Here is a pic showing the rev counter and the pulsator bulb is on the right hand side you can just make it out


Here is a restored a/c, rev counter appears to not be fitted nor can I see the fuel sight gauge


Here is one with the vertical fuel sight gauge fitted (I think) - it is on the right behind the oil pulsator
