  Jacek,
Ah you just have to love those SPADS. Here's a couple of my ancient SPAD projects for your approval. First up is a SPAD XII in 1/48 scale. This was a conversion project using a Hawk SPAD XIII from the early 50's. Once completed there wasn't much of the donor kit remaining.






  Lastly a Blue Max SPAD VII.



  Thanks for looking.
Highest Regards,
Gregory Jouette

What a lovely finish you achieved Gregory and, as Jacek says, the display technique is really interesting.

Best wishes
Nigel

 Jacek and Nigel,
Thank you very much for your ind words.I appreciate it. The SPAD's are mine but I can't take credit for the display. This is the work of the staff at the Mississippi Armed Forces Museum.
Highest Regards,

@ Jacek:

I really like the scheme of this model, very colorful.  For sheer modeling fun, I think these 1/28 Scale kits are great.  If you don't get too wrapped around the axle over details, they are a nice model to build.

@ Brad:  Neat scheme and I like the faded colors.

@ Gregory:  Exellent craftsmanship, especially when one considers what you started with.

@Ssashoo:  Nice work.  Rigging is very nicely done.

Best

Okay, I have posted these before, but here they are again.  These first ones are the Academy/Hobbycraft SpadXIII in Barca's markings, again, had I had references they would be different.  I still like it.

And of course the Revell 1/28 Spad XIII in the ever popular Rickenbacker Scheme.









Enjoy

a nice thread, here is my Academy 1/32 scale SPAD XIII - a custom set of decals was made to represent the aircraft flown by Lt. Sumner Sewall of the 95th Aero Squadron Nov 1918.  Thanks to an in depth conversation with Alan Toelle I got all of the details right (after three attempts lol!)  other than the color Beige, which should have more of a "pumpkin" shade to it, but there will be a lot more SPADS to come...

Ok, I missed a bunch but I must say I am impressed by all of the SPADS posted. Gregorys' Conversion and Daves 1/28th kit stand out to me. Lovwly schemes and beautifully painted!

What a nice explosion of Spad's here Jacek, Brad, Ssasho, Gregory, Mark and Dave, showing how skilled you all are. This a magnificent bird and I is a joy to look at them all. Dave I like your subtle and gentle colors very much. Many congratulations gentlemen!
