I will start this but I hope others like  Bud, Brad, and Mark, to name a few, will show their excellent 28 builds in all scales!

What a beautiful piece of work Rick.it really looks the part and I find that camouflage pattern so pleasing to the eye.

Best wishes

Hello Rick,

Seeing your Nieuport again, I can only dream of such a finishing. Your paintwork is awful as are your decals and rigging. It's a very nice scheme with the Screaming Eagle. Wonderful build Rick, one to be VERY proud of. Congratulations!

Kind regards
Patrick

A very striking colour scheme which makes this model really stand out, you have done a superb job with the painting. The rigging and every other part of this build is excellent, congratulations and well done.

She's a beaut, Rick.  Your build is a good reference for anyone
wanting to build one of the Ni.28's.  Good work!

Cheers,
Ernie :)

She's a stunner, Amigo!  As I said when you finished her, you did a remarkable job masking and painting this gorgeous scheme.  Makes me want to build another.  It really is one of Roden's best kits.
Cheers,
Bud

Patrick,
Thanks! I had to underline the quote assuming it was a Misspelling  8)
That being said, I think your build will equal mine in all ways!

I'm sure you've all seen mine: the Revell offering in 1:72 with substantial improvements (I hope!) including Aeroclub prop, wheels and guns, major reworking of the cowling including opening up the front and the cooling openings and reprofiling the curves, and a scratchbuilt axle assembly, carb intake and venturi tube.
 If I was going to do it again, I'd fill the panel lines on the nose and rescribe them a little thinner!

Beautiful model Ian.  Great detail and paintwork, especially in the
teeny scale.  Very well done!

Cheers,
Ernie :)

Ian, I thought you had this one in your completed Models but couldn't remember for sure so sorry I didn't mention your build! That being said I am glad you blessed us with seeing this Beauty again as it is one of the Nicest 28s in any scale I have seen!

O Rick what a misspelling indeed. You know I meant "awfully nice". And I will have to live long to equal your wonderful build. Sorry for that mistake my friend, it wasn't my day I guess.

Kind regards

Special thanks to Rick for starting this thread with his excellent Nie. 28 and Ian for showing his 1/72nd masterpiece.  I always liked this airplane and must do more.  Here is my Roden 1/32nd in Quentin Roosevelts markings using the "Aeromaster" (I think) Decals.








And just for humor, my Aurora/Glencoe 1/48 Nie 28.  This pretty much got me back into WWI A/C modeling in about 2006.
