Show us your - Nieuport 17
« on: May 09, 2014, 01:27:42 AM »
I did not see a category started for the N.17, so here we go, I have a couple to add... 
First one is the Eduard 1/48 scale kit, I painted it to represent the Belgian N.23 flown by Edmund Thieffry. (The only external difference between the N.17 and N.23 was the position of the Vickers gun on the upper cowl, the 17 was on the centerline and the 23 was to the right of the center line due to different syncronizers.)

Here is my only 1/72 scale model in the collection - Eduard's Nieuport 17 in markings for Guynemer's N.1330 with replacement wings.  I am still not sure if they should have the 4 color camouflage like on the Nieuport 16's but it will stay as it is for now.

Those are beautiful Noops Dave!  Your finish and decaling are excellent.  I really like the pair you've chosen to model.  Thieffrey's Belgian 17 is on my list to do in 1/32, but it will be many years down the road. ;)

Very nice Cone de Penetration on Guynemer's machine.  I really like the camoflaged wings w/o national markings on this one.  Something a little different. :D 

Very well done!

Cheers,

Bob

A lovely pair of Niueports Dave, I especially like the first one but both models are extremely well done.

Those are lovely, Nieuports, Dave.  Thanks for starting the topic- very nice work on them both! It's difficult to believe that the Guynemer example is 1/72nd and as others have said, the 1/48th Belgian version is just beautifully rendered!

Hello Dave and Siskin,

Very nice builds of a lovely a/c. Your schemes are all splendid. Are all the markings decals or is there paintwork too? Well done, congratulations.

Kind regards
Patrick

Siskin,
I really like both of your Nieuports! The subtle,yet effective weathering is excellent! Beautifully done!

Ian,
One of the nicest Nieuports I have seen in this scale! Beautifully painted and your overpaint of the upper roundels is excellent!

Nice builds Siskin.  Ian I like your Italian version with the overpainted roundels, but unfortunately your Vickers gun is upside down.
