Aurora 1/48 Nieuport 11

Recommended Posts

I've had this one done for a while and just got around to rigging it. Usual out of the box with a minimum interior added. The decals were way gone and I didn't want to spend stupid money for new ones, so these are spurious markings I cobbled together and a paint scheme that is an amalgam of several I have seen. The rockets were used to shoot at zeppelins and observation balloons, but most sources cannot site where one was actually shot down with them.

You're a man after my own heart Ron! It's amazing how nice an older kit like that one can look with some good skills, some elbow grease, and a little TLC. The rockets look cool but I imagine they were a terror to fly with and actually fire, with flaming exhaust all around a fabric doped airplane! Did you paint the prop? Very nice, subtle wood grain there. Thanks for posting!

Beautiful work Ron! this is most impressive. Having built a 1/72 scale one of these; I can relate to your work somewhat.
