Dave, Siskin and Ian, lovely little Neuports, each and every one!
Cheers,
Bud

No problem Ian, maybe you can still pop it off with tweezers, scrape the glue off and put it the other way around?  I don't want to be critical just like to point out things that stick out like that in the hopes that you can repair them or at least know of the problem before showing them in contests or similar circumstances.
Hopefully I did not offend you, that was not my intention, and if you can spot something with one of mine I would love to hear about it to see if it was something that I could fix.
Thanks
Dave

Here's my 1/48 Nieuport 17, from the Eduard kit, built OOB except for decals and rigging.








Cheers!

None taken Dave :)

I have no idea how I missed this as this was nowhere near my first WWI kit, nor my first using that gun type.  I guess I was rushing, thinking back I was trying to see if the "weekend" theme could be taken literally.  I'll put this one down to experience...

Dave, Siskin, Ian and Brad, all your Nieuports look amazing.  A lovely
little aeroplane and you have all more than done it justice.  Well done!

Speaking of Nieuports, here's a couple of pictures of mine done earlier.
It's an Academy 1/32 model.

Cheers,
Ernie :)

Hello Ernie,

I remember this build so well! This was a true  homage to Guynemer. You did a great job my dear friend. Congratulations.

Kind regards

Stunning Nieuport Ernie, I have just bought the academy kit as a test build in 1/32!  :o

Thanks for the kind words, Justin.  The Academy model is a good one to
start on.  The interior is sparse, but lends itself to easy detailing.  I don't
know if you have come across it yet, but there is a very good page of cutaway
drawings by Mark Miller that are ideal for detailing.
