My latest SPAD, a full build article currently over at Internet Modeler for anyone interested in it...  This is Charles Nungesser's Spad XIII from the 1/48 scale Eduard kit, further research has shown that the red/white/blue triangle behind the cockpit should be a white triangle offset to one side, designed to confuse the opponents aim.

This one has been posted here before as a build, but here's my Hobbycraft SPAD.

Dave and Sobrien, two more really excellent Builds for the display here. The colours are spectacular and the markings available for the Spad XIII seemingly endless. It's not difficult to understand why so many here have two or more of these on their shelves, very nice to see! 8)
Cheers,

All three are beauties, Rick.  'Good show' as they say.
I'm waiting for the Roden SPAD to show up.

Outstanding work Ken, and a great example of how these Roden kits can be made into showstoppers.

Many thanks for sharing with us.

cheers

I figured it was time to add MY Roden 1/32nd scale SPAD XIII early to the thread. Not quite as detailed as Kens but I think a good example of an "Almost" OOB build.

RAGIII,
It's great to see another SPAD XIII emerge from your skilled hands.

Definitely a fine addition to the thread, Rick.  So now we have a French and British SPAD completed and an Italian one in the works at this time.
