Hi, all

I'm in the process of building a 1/4 Scale r/c Nieuport 28, based on the
Proctor kit. This model is based on N6168 flown by Lt. Wentworth of the 94th
Aero Squadron. I have a few unanswered questions that I hope some of you
fellows out there may have some answer to.

1. Colors of the serpent painted on the cowl/fueselage?
2. Rib stitching...proper spacing and placement, i.e., was there
stitching to the false ribs and did the position/spacing of stitching vary
front to aft/inboard to outboard?

These are some questions that I have, after over a year of research into
these aircraft, not been able to find any definitive answers to and would
appreciate any help anyone may be able to provide. Thanks so much for any
forthcoming help and advice.

Regards, Bob Pickwoad
