there was a Spad.  My first ever self-built model.  A stick built Guillows that remarkably came out fine.  I built it sometime in the late forties during my pre-teens. I loved the scalloped trailing edges and the paint scheme.  I painted it just like it looked on the box.

I wish I had it now.  It could have been one of many that Teddy Langford and I doused with lighter fluid, set them ablaze and launched on their last flight.  

That was then, this is now.  Got me on a Spad search.  It wasn't difficult to find examples on the net:

But my shaky fingers are a problem when assembling so I decided on something a bit less fussy.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Hawk-model-Co-No-54-Spad-C13-new-old-stock-1940s-/121894855329?hash=item1c617fe2a1:g:~sUAAOSwezVWwNOk#shpCntId

Last Guillows I built was a Nieuport 17, didn't turn out to bad.  Prior to that was my venerable N-28 alluded to several times here on these very pages.  Maybe some day I will give Teddy a call and relive old times.

The Nieuports look good, nice work. Regarding the Spad, I've built a couple, Comet Kit 3105 rubber powered 12" wingspan back in the '60s as a young teen. (Then we didn't call them "peanut scale". Kits were $0.69 retail plus tax. Spads have always been nice looking airplanes.

A man after my own heart! I love biplanes and triplanes! I traced the top and center wings of a Sterling E2 Fokker DR1 kit to build 1/8" balsa sheet-wings for a profile biplane. The tail-feathers are tracings of the kit too. I eye-balled the fuse-shape and cut that from 1/4" balsa. Wing-struts are popsicle-sticks. I started with a Babe Bee but later made a cut-out in the nose for the Perfect wedge tank to run a product (horseshoe) backplate. I think I made the scalloped trailing-edges by wrapping sandpaper around my index finger! It was a very easy build.. and fun to fly!
