  1. Splendid work David, it’s inspirational for sure. Makes me wish having one of this models in my display shelf

  2. Just "WOW". Interesting paint scheme. Superb built, details, painting and weathering!

  3. Wow, very pretty and unusual colour scheme. Like the see through effect of the roundels on wings. Any particular reason for over painted roundels?

    • Not sure why they did that but they seemed to prefer the roundels on the undersurface only. Could be that from above they were easier to spot from a higher flying enemy

  4. Nice work, David!

  5. Excellent work and a beautiful result. More inspiration for the kit sitting here in its box.

  6. Outstanding result, David.
    The detailing is impressive like the cockpit and the rigging.

  7. This is a spectacular Nieuport, David!
    Amazing weathering, even more so at the NM parts.
    Could just copy and paste my excellency comments at your jobs.
    Congratulations!

  8. The plane of a one of the rare Belgian aces : beautiful and realistic. Congratulations !
