Any landing you walk away from is a good one….

December 31, 2016 in Aviation

This is the 1/48 Eduard French Nieuport Ni-11, my first ever Bi-Plane, and last completed build of 2016.
I have always wanted to build a WW1 Bi-Plane but never got around to it until now.
Its from the box (with the addition of rigging) and was just a little bit of a muck around really but fun all the same. I didn’t want to display it sitting nicely parked up so thought I’d spice it up just a bit and have it planted nose first after a heavy landing. I think it ads an interesting twist, and makes for a simple but effective diorama.
