Brad Cancian (BradCancian) sent us a full build review of Eduard's 1/72 scale Nieuport 17 kit. The article features some very nice pictures of the finished model.

Hi Brad

Superb work! It's hard to believe it's not larger than 1/72 scale!

Many thanks for submitting the article - here's to many more!

All the best

It is a really nice kit. But without a skilful builder, it is only plastic. Great review and build. I think I will go check my closet to see if I can cram another Eduard box in there.

How is this for a timeless build? Here I am 10 years after you posted this to commend you on a fantastic job. I stumbled across here looking for reviews of Eduard's 1/72 biplanes. I do believe I'll be purchasing one of these.
