Hi No.1!!!

Shape looks good, this is a pic of a Chauviere propeller used in the SPAD XIII:



It might help you with the wood grain effect and colour shading.

Have you got the scheme you want for it?

I'll see if I can get you some interesting pics for it.

Cheers!

Hi Nro.1,

keeping on with the SPAD theme, I recalled seeing in a website from Uruguay a profile from the ones used there. So, here it is:



Lovely, isn't it?

I'll see if I manage to find pictures of the SPAD VII and XIII used here in Argentina.

Cheers!

Hi Matt,

great pic, it's a SPAD VII right? It's always weird to look at the SPAD and Nieuports in RAF liveries.

Hi....this picture is from my 139th Aero project folder. One of Robert Linsday's machines. Is that a Spad 13 or 7?  ;)

Good eye Javier it is VII!

This particular example was built in the UK in 1917, its history is unknown though.

Hi lads!

From what I recall, the VII only has 4 cabane struts linking the upper wing and fuselage. The XIII has 6, the first 2 bent backwards. So Lindsay's should be a VII. There was a SAMI Magazine where they gave the serial numbers for all of the british produced VIIs.

What a lovely series of aircrafts!!!

Cheers!
