Manufacturer: Testors

Model: Nieuport Type 17 C.1, 19th Corps Detachment, Imperial Russian Air Service, 1917, Serial # and pilot unknown

Scale: 1:48th

Decals / Markings: AeroMaster Silver Hawks Part II 48-521

Modeler’s Notes:

1) A nice, simple kit that goes together quickly and easily. No filing was done and only light sanding as the gaps are extremely tight. Wing alignment is fairly straightforward. Extra cockpit detailing other than a pilot is not included. All rigging is done using 0.15mm music wire cut to size and glued using white tacky glue.

2) The markings come from an outside decal sheet. These markings represent a Nieuport Type 17 C.1 from the 19th Corps Detachment, Imperial Russian Air Service, 1917. The serial # and pilot are unknown. The 19th Corps Detachment was known as the “Death or Glory” Squadron, which accounts for the traditional skull and cross bones tail insignia. The Cyrillic letters “Bob”, which translates to “Bean”, appeared on both sides of the fuselage. The gold and black striped pennants are linked to the colors of the Order of Saint George. The outer wheel covers were decorated in a black and white ying-yang design.

Paints: Tamiya acrylic flat aluminum, silver, deck brown, dark gray, Testors Dullcote

I don't remember seeing this one on the other site. A beautiful WWI build and nice display. I like that you rig them as well.
