Forced to add aftermarket engine, better but the exhaust pipes still are on the wrong side of the cylinders. 3D printed GasPatch Lewis gun, the prop I pinched from a Dr1 kit and reshaped. Kits front cabane struts WAY too short, replaced with shaped styrene rod. E-Z Fine for rigging.

The Nieuport 11 of Jean Navarre, N576. Merit/SMER 1/48 scale.













It was never my intention to turn this into something like an Eduards, still plenty left to do for that. I didn't add a windscreen, no brace for the Lewis, no torque tubes for the ailerons, and my favorite, the outer wing struts attaching to the movable aileron on the upper wing. Much of the old character still here in this old Merit/SMER Nieuport.

Love it!! Navarre only flew straight and level so ailerons weren't necessary...... ::)
