Hi,

 

ncKaxYp.jpg

 

It's the Special Hobby kit. The details out of the box and the fit are not too bad, but it need way more work than a WNW kit. I remade or improved several parts or sub-assemblies, such as the engine (resin copy of a WNW LeRhône 9C), the gun mount, the engine cowling (resin copy of a A-model part, as the part in the SH kit is the larger cowling of a Nieuport 16 with a LeRhône 9J), and a lot of smaller parts... It was quite long, but it's finally there !

The scheme is a imperial russian scheme, with no less than 12 roundels (normally 14, but this one as a skull on the tail instead of 2 more roundels !). I used a Begemot decal sheet, but in fact i only used the skulls from the set, as i painted the roundels with custom masks. I also used a nice small DUKS logo written in russian (on the engine cowling) that come from another Begemot set (for Nieuport 21).

The color is my interpretation of the dull aluminium coating of the russian, darker and duller than the aluminium coating of the french, as the aluminium particles were coarser. It's a mix of Gunze H337 (FS35237), Tamiya XF-82 (Ocean Grey 2), and XF-16 (flat aluminium), followed by a Flory dark dirt wash, and various effects, especially on the front and underside (AK engine oil, engine grime, fuel stains, Mig Earth...). I was quite light on the dirt, as i finally prefered to represent an aircraft operated in summer.

 

The rigging was made with standard EZ-line, 0.5mm micro-tube and a few Gaspatch turnbuckles. The Lewis Mk.II is from Gaspatch, too.

 

It was definitely not a Shake-n-bake kit, but it was quite pleasant, and i really like the subject, as much Russia (not very represented in WW1 modelling) as this cute little french aircraft that stopped the Fokker Scourge in 1916.

 

Here is a link to the WIP, if it can help someone : http://forum.largesc...446&hl=nieuport

 

Hope you like it !

Following the big Photobucket rip-off attempt, all my pictures on the forum cannot display anymore. I try to reupload the RFI pictures, but i'm not sure i'd have enough time and energy to reupload the pictures of the WIP threads. If you're interested in a specific subject and want me to reupload some pictures, just let me know. :)

Here with the WNW Sopwith Pup, which is not a huge aircraft, but looks rather big compared with the Nieuport 11 (i was also very surprised to see how the WNW model is heavier than the SH one).

And my only reference picture : 

nieuport11.jpg

 

 

You may notice a subtle finger print on the enginecowling... No worry, it's gone. It was some enamel wash (never totally dry when you keep your finger on it during the manipulations...). I only noticed it when i watched my pictures. I just gently rubbed it with a cotton bud and it's ok now. :)

This is stunning result Nic, I know the kit and it is not "shake and bake" like the WNW stuff. I really like your choice of subject and just the right touch of weathering. The detailing is fantastic. Thank you for sharing.

Martin

Very nice! :speak_cool:

 

Looks like a flying target with all that roundels on :wicked:

Maybe the Russians used so many roundels to compensate that they had so little aircraft? :whistle:
