Show us your - Nieuport 11

Hi I just couldn`t resist to see your Ni 11s. You`ve probably seen this one... Eduard`s 1:48 depicting Paul Tarascon`s Ni 11 Weekend Edition. I`ve added some details to the cockpit etc.






Best regards
Filip

Two absolutely gorgeous Bebe's, Filip and Red.  Hopefully, I'll be joining you guys soon.
Cheers,

I completely forgot about this one.  Not long after my last post, I finished my Eduard 1/48 Nie. 11 in Lufbery's markings.  Here she is.

Great looking bird. Your wing trim paint is excellent and that scheme is very sharp

Thanks, Bo!  I do, too.  I'm really glad that Ronny Bar, Bob Pearson and others have revised their interpretations of contemporary photos of the subject.  Adds some color to the old display case.
Cheers,
Bud

I'll pile on too Bud. It's a fine looking Nieuport you have there. The colour scheme with its feathered edges really catches the eye.

Cheers,

Chris

Hallo,
nice Nieuports. I'm attaching few pictures of my 1/32 Special Hobby kit.

The build thread is here:

Really glad you put this up here, Jan.  Aside from the fact that she's absolutely stunning, she lends credence to the assertion that the Nie.11 2 color scheme was, in fact, a 4 color scheme.  I also really love the replacement wing and elevators.  Brilliant.
Cheers,
Bud

Hallo,
to be honest I have to say now I'm not fully convinced about this four colour scheme. Today I'd say that most of the camouflaged Nieuports had 2 color, some of them 3 color camo similar to the attached image - the only color image of a Nieuport 11/16 I had ever seen.

These are all beautiful looking models of the Nieuport, it is a very nice looking aeroplane.

To all 4 of you,
These are all OUTSTANDING examples of flawless construction and brilliant execution of paint work! I really must get that Special Hobbies 11/16 soon! Or perhaps the A Model version.
