If you would likethem I have several photos of this SPAD shot last weekend.
I also have video of this plane including cockpit details. I haven't
reviewed this years "work" but expect them to be useful as I was getting
info for an upcoming 1/6 or 1/5 SPAD project.

I am not sure what scale this would be either. Larry Marshall
<> would probably be a big help with info about
building etc. Golden Age Reproductions or Hannan's Runway may be able to
help with decals etc.
