Did you order directly from Roden?

How is the level of detail, Kent? It appears to me that the wings have some shrinkage (or distortion) at the sprue attachment points...

So I have both the SPAD VII and the new XIII c1 and they seem to be almost identical in detailing.
The engine sprue of the Hispano is exactly the same.

Not having built any of them, I'm not not really sure if I am in a position to give an opinion?

I've got the SPAD VII and I'm impressed with the number of options on the sprues. There seem to be parts for versions of the VII that were not covered by kit releases

If the XIII is similar, that's very encouraging

Just ordered one from an Evilbay seller in the US.  Delivery estimated on June 24.
