Nieuport 11

Post  Oldenginerod on Sun Aug 02, 2015 6:26 am

As a young lad I remember my brother building a small free flight Nieuport from plans in a modelling magazine- he never completed it before moving out of home.  It was designed around a Mills .75 diesel he had.  I got to and put it together, applying a multitude of different colours, paying no attention to any original paint scheme, with a bronze fuselage, green, orange, lime green & something else sunburst on the wings, topped off with a bright orange cowl.  I recall mounting up the mills and giving it a run, but I couldn't figure out how it was supposed to fly- I mean, there was nothing to control it Huh... .
That just didn't compute so I set about converting it to control line, very poorly I may add.  The engine bearers came out with the full intention of mounting up my Super Bee (my first Cox engine) I got in a heap of stuff from an old high school teacher I had.

That's as far as it went.  I lost track of the plans, my interests changed and the Nieuport went into storage.  I always thought it was a 17, but I remember being impressed by the open-bottom cowl my brother had made, so recent investigations reveal it as a Nieuport 11 "Babe".  I think I know where it currently resides in a box somewhere, so will have to dig it out.  Further investigations on the net came up with this.



Guess what?  This is the original article from Aeromodeller Magazine, 1972.  Plans included.

So, once I've completed my Cadet (painting in process) and the Ringmaster Bipe (just starting) and about 4 other kits I have waiting, plus an almost completed Aeroflite .15 size P-40 stunter that's been hanging in the shed for over 30 years, I might just drag out the little Nieuport and see if I can do something with it.  

Too little time!!! Mad

Rod - "Too Little Time" that could be the name of this one when you get her done!! Sure looks like a Sweet little plane to build. I'll have to do some research on Tate and Lyles Golden Syrup, and Banana Oil, it's making me hungry for pancakes!!

Sweet peas Eric, sweet peas. Smile

I don't think that I will break the seal on that Star Wars drone Eric.  But I have always found it curious about those that don't, but I'm beginning to understand.  Smile

My Nieuport 17, Indian and all.  Wind it up and let it go.  It flys pretty good for a while, make that a short while.  Smile
