    Maybe the Oberst will change this title to Official 16/11 thread, as the 11s are helping to pad it out a bit.

    Default Nieuport N.11, Adjutant Jean Navarre esc N.67, March 1916

    One more early war Nieuport for the showcase, this 'Bebe' flown by 12 victory French Ace Jean Navarre over Verdun in early 1916. The model is from Skytrex, one of the last batch I bought before the old boys sold up.

    Currently working on my first none CP plane, my little Nieuport 11 is starting to look rather good just got to finish of the wheels, struts & tail. Hopefully my rondal decals will arrive today so I can finish him off and send to the front to face the dreaded Hun.

    Default Nieuport N.16 Lt. Albert Ball 11 Sqn RFC

    With a double-up de Guibert Nieuport N.16 from my third Balloon Busters Set I decided to do a quick WGF re-paint. I selected a Royal Flying Corps profile, an 11 Squadron Nieuport N.16 flown by Lt. Albert Ball in June and July 1916.

    On 26 June Lt. Ball attacked and destroyed an observation balloon with Le Prieux rockets flying this aircraft. The next day he was gazetted to receive the Military Cross and cited for his continuous determination to be at the enemy. On 2 July 1916 Albert Ball was also flying this Nieuport when he achieved a double victory shooting down a Roland C.II and an Aviatik.

    The re-paint was very simple:

    1. Flat aluminium for the cowl;
    2. One part Humbrol 74 (Linen) to four parts white to paint out the French roundels on the underside of the top wing;
    3. Humbrol 78 (cockpit green) for the green camouflage over the existing dark brown.

    Decals were Skytrex (upper and underside wings) and Shed (36" white disc and British roundels over the existing fuselage Cockerill devices).

    Thanks Rob,

    I saw your Ball N.16 on the first post, very nice.

    One day when I feel like doing a fiddly job I'll go back and apply the roundels on the top underwing and the A134 serial on the rudder.

    I did the repaint late last night and only had a 45 minute window today for the decals.

    Awesome! But how does one convert a N-11 to an N-16? Or will such a conversion upset the underpinnings of the universe? Some of us want to know . . .

    Change Step 1 'remove' to 'add, if necessary'. As Aleksandr Orloff would say, "Simples"!

    Judicious application of epoxy putty would do the trick.

    An excellent re-paint Thomas. I am now toying with rockets following clipper1801's instructions for making but I'm still stuck with making them removable.

    This is a Shapeways bird. I have three more of them. Thinking I will do one of Prince, Rumsey, and maybe McConnell so I'll have a full flight of early Esc124.

    Thanks!

    It is a Frosted Ultra Detail print, so it isn't nearly as rough as the White Strong and Flexible prints.

    Hello,

    For my part, I have repaint (little) the official versions of Nieuport 16 for having the four balloon busters, by adding lines on the deuces for Chouteau, changing the marking for having Prince, and the same for Grandmaison (the rooster have a whiste crest for example) :

    This isn't really deserving to be placed on this thread with these other fine birds, so please consider this a plea for help. Does anyone know if there are 1/144 decals for LE MOME? Please let me know if you ever come across a set. Thank you.

    If you can send me a side view of the original plane Dave. I will try and knock you out a set of decals for it.

    This site is a MUST for the french wings, and is always updated.

    There is many original pictures from private collection, and beautiful profiles.
