Eduard 1/48 scale Nieuport 11

Recommended Posts

Good afternoon guys!

 

I have had a few months off modelling and my Scratch built B17G as I have been away from my work bench but finally have found the time to build something ...this time OOB!

 

May I present to you my effort of the Nieuport 11...in the markings of  Cpl Victor Chapman ,N.124, Lafayette Americane, 1916. This is the Eduard 1:48 scale kit and and a pleasant build it was too!!

 

The lower starboard wing was taken off another camouflaged Nieuport as a replacement ,due to damage!....if your wondering!!

Lovely model and added interest with the replacement wing. I do like that aspect of WW1 aircraft - it makes them different!

Lovely Nieuport. The wing in another paint scheme is a nice touch.

Nice build. I like your clean rigging. I have been having a nightmare doing my He 51's rigging. How did you go about it?

Hi Greg

Thanks for your input!

 

I have to say I love doing rigging on these WW1 aircraft. I always use small gauge fishing wire...I drill small holes where the wire is attached to the frame and super glue one end of the wire into the hole....when dry I place the other end of the wire through the next hole along the frame and pull taught ...at the same time applying a drop of super glue to hold it in position.To clean up I cut the excess wire with a hot knife......all you need to do then is paint them!

 

Well that's my method any way Greg...I'm sure there are many ways of achieving the rigging!!....cheers!
