Edgar, I think this is the first Nieuport 17 kit in any scale to accurately render the differences between the early and late wings.  I don't think I've ever been so excited about a pending kit release.  Thank you!
Cheers,
Bud

I'm making a small stash of 1/32nd kits and this will be a next purchase as soon as it will be released. Simply beautiful!

Will you be offering the engine sprue separately? Scratchbuilders like me buy engines

Bud, what are the other differences between the early and late models, like panels and spinner?

I am not Bud but will tackle the wing question. Other than the center panel being covered in a clear material it looks as though there are no "False" ribs used  on the wing. I hope I got it right but I am sure someone will correct me if not.

From what we know
Early Nieuports had early wings, not reinforced, without mini ribs, that were attached to a leading edge of the both wings
also, early Nieuport`s had a square shape maintenance hatch on the fuselage starboard side
Should I also mention, that there was no oil tank on the firewall, that we all got used to, as it was installed in the cockpit, next to a fuel tank, and had an odd shape, due to fuselage rigging.
Most of the early types had a transparent wing cut out, covered by cellulose
