Copper State Models 1/32 Nieuport XXIII markings
« on: February 28, 2020, 11:49:19 AM »
Hot on the heels of releasing its Nieuport XXI markings, Copper State Models has now released the marking options for its forthcoming Nieuport XXIII. This kit will feature Russian and Belgian schemes.








No release date has been confirmed yet but it's likely to be late March/ April sometime.

I'm gonna burst with glee. This Nieuport binge from CSM is wonderful news for those of us who were disappointed when WNW publicly stated that they had no plans to compete with other companies already having such types on the market.

In Cyrillic the lower case for the letter "b" is somewhat shaped like the number "6" so the name on the fuselage is indeed Bob not Bod.
Maybe someone can explain the meaning of Bob because it is not a Russian name nor could I find it in a Russian dictionary.

Awesome marking of Belgian fighters, but the second Belgian Nieuport  was flying by Edmond Thieffry ,  the red bar in a white circle was his personal marking,the comet is a squadron mark
