Chalenging Nieuport
« on: August 27, 2006, 12:49:33 AM »
In last issue of the "Cross & Cockade" magazine was apear interesting article about the Nieuport fighter. At the

3rd Instructional Center in Issoudon, France, was two very interesting painted Nieuport fighters. Issoudon was

US trainer place. They was painted like a fish and possible used colors are green [maybe from camouflage,

which else], white, red silver dope and black and all used in various shades. Image present plane called Flying

Fish and there was one more sample called Jazbo and this was model Nieuport 24. US used this planes as a

trainer and it is not know that any of this machines had star over roundel in the European theatre.

From my point of view it is real courage to make a scale kit of this plane... how about 1/72?
