Eduard''s Nieuport 11 Weekend kit #8421 is here so we discuss the kit and its build up. Of special note, this was the first of the Eduard releases to have a figure included. The Nieuport 11 and licensed built versions were flown operationally by Belgium (1 example), France, Italy, Russia. 1915 -1917.

Thank you Stephen to bring this up!

This Baby was my first (successful) attempt in WW1 aircraft building, so I am particularely linked to it.
It was an enjoiable build, and one that I recommend to anyone!

I built one of their older Bebes. It is a fantastic kit. Easily one of their best.
