1/72nd Revell Nieuport 28 Detail Parts

Nieuport 17C.1, 1/72 Esci kit. This is Charles Nungesser's airplane, finished per box instructions. The kit is almost out of the box, but I hollowed the cowling and replaced the engine with one from the spare parts box (IIRC it came from an Airfix Sopwith Pup), also refined the base of the V struts with some Milliput and changed the undercarriage legs for a better looking assembly (nothing too accurate, as I lacked references by that time). The weathering is done with watercolour pencils.
