Any RFC Nie.21s?

No, but the RNAS used a few (Sometimes referred to as 17B).

https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=tEeEAwAAQBAJ&pg=PA46&lpg=PA46&dq=RNAS+Nieuport+3956&source=bl&ots=4VQ7RdNA0U&sig=82NPkB6ZOfuUsdIMCM0xk1MeXLk&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiihv2HzbnLAhXLvhQKHYNMC4MQ6AEIJDAB#v=onepage&q=RNAS%20Nieuport%203956&f=false

This is a surprising release (albeit one that has an appeal in their home market) as all the parts to make a 21 are in the Eduard kit.

Oh, right! Well, the Eduard Nie.17 is the best biplane I've ever built so that's bad news for Bat Project, I guess.

Upper wing in transparent material ?

That is what I always suggested for replicating the shine through effect.

Tho why not the lower wing either ?

I think it's for the clear panel sometimes present in the upper wing of Nieuports.
