Nieuport 17 - Scale EPP
Amazing detail on this kit. The printing is very impressive. Pre-Fab on the fuselage is definitely a bonus for build simplicity. All the little scale tidbits make for a nicely accessorized model when completed. In the air with the recommend TH power combo this plane flies very smooth and scale like. The scale buffs will appreciate that this is not a floaty 3D plane. The Nieuport is the perfect bipe that will impress all that see it, and a great choice for laid back afternoon at the park or flying field.
