  1. A few years back, I dug my one and only World War One build out of the cabinet, and thought, what the heck, take some pics of the old girl for a few grins. It had never been photographed before, and it looks pretty rough in many ways. It is the ancient Testors (ex-Hawk) kit of the Nieuport Type 17 C.1 sesqui-plane built probably around 1994 or so. It has my first attempt at rigging, using fine guitar string. I did scratch-build an entire cockpit, including sidewalls,floor, headrest and instrument panel. The exhaust is drilled out solder and I added some oil filler caps. The bungee cord shock-absorbers are thread coated with thinned white glue. I also made the elevator horns and added the control cables, again from fine wire. The gun sight ring is copper wire. I believe the paint is Floquil Old Silver and the engine cowl is probably Humbrol polished aluminum (just can’t recall for sure). The cockpit sidewalls are painted in some linen enamel. I used the kit decals. The Lafayette insignia of the Seminole Indian was supposedly taken off a box of Savage rifle cartridges back in The Great War. That pilot figure is probably close to 60 years old and originally came with the old Aurora 1/48 Spad, iirc. I added him just to give a sense of scale and of course he still wears the paint job I gave him all those years ago. The base is something I threw together after I got home from work one winter afternoon. My usual piece of “tarmac” just wouldn’t do for this WWI plane. I really would like to have a base that features a dirt runway for some older aircraft. Maybe a project for this winter? We bought a Nikon D3300 DSLR a few Christmases back, and this is the only model I’ve photographed with it thus far, and I don’t really know what I’m doing, lol. I experimented with the macro mode and automatic and one can see why I usually take my pics outdoors. None of these pics are that great but I had fun shooting them. With a whole lot of trepidation, I’m posting this genuine “blast from the past” (in more ways than one, ) and I hope you take a look…just not too close! Of course, you already know comments are always welcomed! Thanks for your interest! Gary
