Long Shot Request: PE from Copper Sate Nieuport Vickers Needed
« on: January 30, 2021, 04:03:53 AM »
I know this is a long shot but.... Having tried several ways to get a Gaspatch Vickers to fit My current SPAD I gave up. The Copper State Vickers is a step or two up from the Roden offering and I can Make it fit. That being said the Spare included in the early version had No PE for the front. It is part P6 in the 23 kit and not sure about the number in the 17 late version. If anyone used a Gaspatch Vickers or didn't use the Vickers at all for some reason and has the PE part I would greatly appreciate the help!
Thanks For Looking and PM Me if you can help!

I can't find the instructions online, what is the part? I may have an alternative from a different Vickers gun kit - I seem to have a collection...

It is the end cap with the small divider in the middle for the Vickers, Thanks Richard!

Yes that is the part needed!

PS: At this point I can't be too picky about French vs British. The Roden kit represents the French gun also and the CSM one will work. As the French built the ones used by 19 I am not totally sure which gun they used anyway  ::)

I'll check my Nieuport Datafiles, it's likely to be the French one with the Alkan-Hamy synchronising gear. If so, the gun should have a spring on the front above the muzzle

I have an etched part from the PART Poland bits for a Camel F1. I can't load photos at the moment, it's part 95 in step T here:

Thanks to Richard for his quick and generous response! That being said while looking for something else I found a partial PE set from PART for the NIeuport 28. Guess what I had two of  ::) All is well now and I have already attached the PE to the Copper State Vickers!

Where do you get your PART sets? Direct from Poland? I used to find them on eBay, but I seldom see the N.28 set in 1/32nd. I sure wish Aviattic would repop some more of their cowlings.
