    Certainly not in the same league as Franks 17; here's mine from several years back that I'll add to the display. Hobby Craft 1:32 Scale Kit.

Nice one, Lance! And the detail of that special window.
Once I build such model, I know the details ;)

Cheers,
Frank

   Thanks Frank, and Bud as well. I did the windshield with a brass frame like the original which is in the Canadian War Museum in Ottawa, our National Capital. Bishop brought it home at the end of the War complete with a bullet hole courtesy of an Albatros, the bullet clipped his goggles off! It's a neat display. They also have the prop
 and the blue LVG spinner which he fitted to B1566 later after his infamous (and oft disputed) Victoria Cross Mission.
Cheers,
Lance

Lance, as far as I understand the Windsocks this Window is more often used in Nieuport 23 (could also be a field replacement), which is mainly a Nieuport 17 with a Vickers moved form the middle more to the right side. There is even a picture with a "cicken wire glass" to avoid glass fragments in case of a damage.

Cheers,
Frank

Greg,
     Outstanding work, a real beauty! I struggled with the same After Market Cockpit but it looks like you got some great results, and the colors are spectacular.
Cheers,
Lance
