Spa.48 reference info?

Okay guys, I'm new to the list. I've been enjoying reading all the posts for
the last week or so and finally decided to jump in and ask for some help with
my next project. I would like to build DML's Spad 13 or maybe JGMT's Spad 7
in Spa 48 markings. Those rooster heads are great! I think MSAP's Spad
sheet really captured it. More specifically, I read a great article in
Winsock Vol. 7 No. 4 (August 1991) -- France's Foreign Legion of the Air --
on Jaques Roques, and in that article, the author (Jon Guttman) mentions a
MdL. Paul Louis Huteau. I REALLY want to build Huteau's plane -- you see, my
last name is Hughto (pronounced like the name Hugh and then the things on the
end of your feet). Thus, MdL. Huteau and I have the same last name
phoenetically. My last name is French-Canadian and may well have been
spelled like Huteau's at one time. Well, the article mentions Huteau, but
gives few details and because it was focused on Roques, of course, there are
no pictures of Huteau's mount -- assuming he even had one that he used
consistently. If anyone knows anyhting that might help or knows of any
likely references, I would appreciate hearing about them. Sorry to make my
first post so esoteric. I'm excited to be part of the list. Everyone seems
so friendly and knowledgable. By the way, G-day Shane!
