872 is finished!
It's quite a strange plane between the nieuports Navarre used.
first because it was not a new plane. We know it was used before in the N3.
second because it's surely the first plane , perhaps the prototype who used alkan system wich permit the lewis to fire toward the propeler.
the arrival of the vickers with 200 bullet (lewis had 50) made the system obsolete.
Navarre used always two plane at the same time to fly the most he could.
872 was surely used between middle of march and the end of april of 1916 together with first ni-16 965 and later with ni-16 1130


during this time he reach three victory

- 18/05/16 : a plane crashed in Bolante
- 19/05/16 : Aviatik C (capturated) Chattancourt with Boillot (victory n°10)
- 21/05/16 : Biplace shot down in  Avocourt (victory n° 11)




















I forgotten the SFA numbers... I will put them soon....




soon I will post pics with the diorama

You turned out a show stopper here. I really like your work on this model. It catches more than just the the airplane, it also embodies that paeticular period. I can't wait to see it in a diorama.

Great work. Heavy weathering is always risky on aircraft but this works!!

Xan,
     Beautifully done with an outstanding weathering job, this is an absolutely stunning  model. I can't get over the staining on the fuselage sides, you really nailed that feature! Just spectacular work all round!
Cheers,
Lance

Really a wonderful model! Especially the weathered red turned out absolutely great.
Congratulations to that masterpiece!

Superb Xan - just superb  :) It's also worth repeating that the worn/oil stained effect you have on the fuselage is absolutely the 'biz'. You have reminded me too - I didn't weather the lower wings for wheel spray on mine  ::) Time to get the airbrush out again.

A terrific result indeed - looking forwards to seeing it in the dio

I think you`ve built the best Ni model I`ve ever seen. It`s simply a piece of art!
I`m green with envy mate ;)
Best regards
