So while waiting for the Copperstate Nieuport 17 I thought I would start some work on this one. It will be finished in Markings from the Lafayette Escadrille.

I have this kit (and CSM's early Nieuport 17), too. Like to make this one an US trainer. What version will you do?

That's a nice kit Rick. The Roden Nieuports can be made into very nice models.

I'll be following your build.

Hi Rick
I look forward to all Nieuports! I got to get up close to a full scale and airworthy one just last Monday. I look forward to seeing your version unfold. Getting that silver dope right is going to be the trick.

Cheers

Patrick/Petrov27 has offered the Center section I need to do the Soubiran version of this kit so it will be N.1977. Thanks to Patrick and this forum for being so AWESOME!
