In the meantime:

'Wings Cockpit Figures' have a generic French pilot - Check out the FaceBook page,

'Blackdog Models' have two French pilot figures.

'Kellerkind Miniatures' have several generic French pilots.

And on the other side, there's me, who's not interested to much in heroes. So I would rather like to see „generic“ french pilots, mechanics and the like. As far as I can see, most of the french pilot figures we have so far, look a bit „static“, posing for the photographer. So I'd be happy with some frenchies as vivid as your german etc. pilots and personell!

Hello Edgar,

I would very much like to know which markings you were going to use for the impending Nieuport kits, as I would like to produce some complimentary decal sheets for your new kit and I'd like to be sure that we did not cover the same schemes. I expect that the availability of alternative markings would help your sales, so we would both benefit.

I've tried to contact you by email but I've received no response from you. I recall that Des tried to also get in touch with you when the contributions to this website from Copper State ceased, but did not get a response either.  I'm sure that you would have no objection to cooperating with Pheon, so perhaps we both had the wrong email address?

Look forward to hearing from you soon, as it would be good to be able to release our decals to coincide closely with the launch of your kit - which looks super, by the way.


All the best

Rowan

Greetings guys,
I would like to add a bit more info about figures, we are doing not only aces, but mostly simple pilots and mechanics that you would be able to use with your CSM Nieuports

Hello Rowan
Glad to see(read) you in this topic, my email is still the same. But just in case it`s edgar.liepinsh (at) copperstatemodels.com, last email from you dated JAN 2016

A small update

We are planning to make several nations at the start
2 French kits - early and late with 4 markings for each, so it`s total of 8
1 Russian kit - 4 markings

And in partnership with Melius Manu, who does all our decal designs, we are preparing around 20 french markings and some Italian markings as well. Please note that each of the decal markings will be sold as a stand-alone set, so the modeller would be able to choose from the variety that we are going to offer
For the British markings, we are doing an additional kit, as some parts should be done in plastic to have an accurate model

And our sculptor is now making figures using the test built model so it all would perfectly fit.
And we really hope to bring it all to you guys this Fall

2 Rowan,
for any additional questions, please email us

With Kajetan(Melius Manu) we made a decision to offer custom Nieuport decals by MM, that would be rather cheap as main roundles and stencils will be already in the kit

Hey, Edgar, all that sounds like an early Christmas, this year!!!
If you‘re out with the Nieuport at fall, this means for me impatiently waiting from September 23rd on: Sweet suffering..!

And what I find most heartening about this is that the above reads as though is Rowan is feeling quite chipper and back on his game. True story, Rowan?....you doing better?
