 Hello All,
Thought I'd post an older vacuform from the vault. As always any and all comments are welcomed and appreciated.
Highest Regards,
Gregory Jouette

She's very nice. I never finished any vacuform and this makes your Nieuport even better.

Excellent workmanship Gregory, the wing alignment looks perfect and you've gotta love that fuselage emblem. Very fine! Thanks for sharing.

Amazing build! No one would see that this is a vacu.

Stunning work, my old friend!  I remember this one from so long ago.  She still looks like new, a tribute to your amazing skills.
Cheers,
Bud

    Not the most successful design of the day but a beautiful machine to the eye and so many wonderful schemes, you did this one proud Old Friend! As Andreas has noted, no one would pick this model as a Vac Kit.
Cheers,
Lance

 Old Friends,
Many thanks to each of you for your kindly comments. I do very much appreciate them. This will likely be my last posting of my older projects as I'm sure everyone gets tired of reruns.

Nice Nieuport 28, especially of a vacu form kit!
Could you please add the scale, my guess it is 1/72?
One day I will try to build the Roden kit in 48.

Cheers,
Frank

  Frank,
Thank you my friend. This one is a Lone Star Models kit in 1/48 scale. Do give the Roden Nieuport 28 a try.Really an excellent kit too. If you're feeling really adventurous go for Roden's 1/32 scale version. Check the build logs for Rick' (RAGIII) outstanding build thread.
Highest Regards,
Gregory Jouette

Gregory,
thank you for the hint!
The 1/48 Roden kit is already in my stash, and I want to stick to 1/48, so the bigger one is not a option. But it will take some time, there are other projects in my mind (and some already started) to do before.
But now I will read Ricks report for sure, just found it. This was far before I joined here.

Cheers,
Frank

Thanks to Gregory for the overgenerous plug  8) As the 1/32nd kit is pretty much an enlarged version of the 1/48th pretty much all corrections or additions are appropriate.
