Well I am alomost to the point of need to cover, paint and mark my 17.
Originally it was to be a Bishop replica. But I have the the nifty skull,
coffin candle insignia from Nungesser in 1/6th. Thus i would like to do his
plane. But so far the only color info I can find is in _Nieuport Fighters_
and it talks about his plane, 1490, from 1916 being done in green/brown camo
with an undefined pattern. Sounds easy! Sheesh! Seems to me I have seen his
markings on an all silver 17 at some point in time. Any help you folks could
toss my way would be *GREATLY* appreciated!


I'll buy datafiles, books, static model whatever (assuming it doesn't get
too expensive) to get a decent 3-view and color documentation for Nungesser!
