Noix Models' 1/48 scale
1922 Nieuport Delage Sesquiplan "Eugene Gilbert"

1922 Nieuport Delage Sesquiplan "Eugene Gilbert" Conversion


Description

 

This is one of my latest kits : a 1922 Nieuport Delage Sesquiplan "Eugene Gilbert" in 1/48th scale.

As the original wings of the Noix Models were warped, I had the idea to built the kit in the 1922 configuration with new wings.

 

 

These wings are done in plastic with the Gottingen 416 airfoil with the help of airfoiltools.com.

 

 

Other specific details are added as small scoops.

 

 

The magazine L'Aeronautique (Nr 41 october 1922) states that there was a third radiator for the oil, and on some pics there are something under the fuselage, so I made it.

 

 

I used Tamiya paints and varnish and Mika Jernfors from Artic Decals did a fantastic job for the decals.
