All,
A slight detour from building a flying scale model of a 1948 Monocoupe and before I try the Halberstadt...this lovely Nieuport!  The renderings on this must be seen to be believed.  The same fellow who repainted this model did the Berg scout I completed a while back.  Stunning, really.  Can't wait to get started, so sharpen your scissors and get ready to fold!

Hi Dan!
Great project of a lovely subject.
After news from a Windsock Worldwide, the model had correct different paintings on sides.

Okay , I'm sitting comfortable now . You can begin  ;)

Really looking forward on seeing this unfold or in this case fold up . I must say those are very well done graphics for the markings , better than decals . 

Do they also do the N-24 bis ?

Thanks for the overwhelming support, everybody!  I hope to not disappoint!
I got the main crank case and the cylinders done.  Next will be the cylinder tops, push rods and intake/exhaust parts and the Le Rhone will be complete!  Stay tuned...Dan

P.S.  If you are so inclined, I'm trying to make a video log of this build to show folks how these models go together.  You can see the beginnings here. Note these videos are kind of detailed and long. But if you have time to kill... ;D:

Plus...they are SUPER professional!

Thanks for your enthusiasm, everyone.  This is fun.

I finished my engine tonight by adding the tops of the cylinders, the manifolds and the pulled sprue rocker arm rods to the crank case.  All in all, it will look swell under the cowling.  Pretty neat.  More soon!
Dan

P.S. Terri:  I don't know if they make a bis model.  I'm sure it's out there.  There's a paper model Blackburn Kangaroo if you like!  You can afford to put out some really neat and esoteric stuff since the downloads are only $6-$7 at a pop and the medium is paper!  ;D

Yes, there are Nieuport 24bis paper models out there, for example this:

.

And here's a site with more 24bis models: http://zarkovmodels.com/en/?search=Nieuport+24+bis

However, since the 24bis used the same fuselage as the 24, but with the standard Nieuport 17 tail, it would be easy to simply draw/copy the 17 tail. Capt Obvious points out that one of the beautiful things about paper modelling is that with a little graphics manipulation, you can print modifications and schemes to your heart's content ... in any scale ... in any number of copies.

My favorite printer is an old Dell  C1760nw laser that I bought several years ago when they were on sale for $85 (bought three). Unfortunately that printer is not available except for exorbitant prices. I also use Brother HL-3170CDW laser with good results, as well as a Canon MG7520 ink jet, but prefer the laser since the prints are waterproof, and I build to convert paper models to Radio Control. However, inkjet printing is better for card models since folding laser printed paper sometimes results in the toner cracking.

Having said that, I think any name brand inkjet or laser will do well, with the paper being as important as the printer.  I'll leave that discussion to Dan. (In general, I use Epson Premium Presentation Paper, 44 pound for 1:33 models).
