1/48 nieuport lewis gun foster mount?
« on: March 05, 2021, 03:34:31 AM »

Is there an aftermarket maker of these in resin?  It looks like Eduard offered a PE version in their RFC Nieuport kit but it's not available outside that I don't think.  I'd prefer resin anyway.

 Eduard produces a Brassin set number 648299 that includes a resin Foster mount along with a Lewis and Vickers gun. Also with photoetch fret. This was made for their SE.5a kits.

Thanks.   I have one of those on order for my SE5a kit.  I believe the Foster mount on the Nieuport was fairly different from the SE5a mount.

For the Nieports 11 and 17 I know only PE sets. There are different mounts types on the sets.
Since the Nieuport Fighters are very small the mounts are very filigree, I have my doubt that there are resin parts.
