I did see a picture of an assembled model and the photograph was not bad but the model had a severe wing droop  on both sides.  I know you mentioned that a wide angle lens would do that but it would take a reqlly foolish , commercial photographer to use a wide angle lens on a photo of that sort.

It is far easier to get a really good photo by using a semi-telephoto85 mm or longer to get a more shallow depth of field and show off the plane instead of the background and everything else around it..  The photo did not have any distractions and I do believe it was not a wide angle lens.

By the way did you get any of that dissertation on B.Gates and the MITS crowd.?

As I'm interested in building a N.28 soon, I've gathered some references for the type and Lee, Neil and Alberto helped me a lot to understand how the real airframe was built and how to live with innacuracies of the Revell kit. I expected the release of the Model Expo Nieuport with expectation, since as in the case of the Albatros model, I was sure that the picture of the advertising would be a good help. However, I was deceived, since the parts doesn't look much like the pictures I saw of 1:1 examples. The worst feature is the lower wing droop. Maybe struts too long and weak lower attachment points? That certainly ruins the stance of the model, taking away the inherent elegance of the nieuport design. However, this would be easy to correct, but after paying that amount of money, the least that you can expect is that the parts doesn't need correction. The wheels appear somewhat on the small side to me, but maybe it's just my impression. The rear fuselage formers must have been a bit thinner for scale appareance, IMHO. Compare the Model Expo pictures with the photos on the Smithsonian restoration pages. Another strange choice is that they provide aluminium wheel covers... but no firewall.

Certainly not! Eric's always had offered a variety of options for shipping charges and he sends his merchandise really fast. Eric also sells the best PE details (imho) in that silvery metal. It's a shame that he stopped doing those 1/72 details. He's also the only source I know of the superb Marty Dygmayer's props. CSM and Rosemont are two of the hobby retailers that I deal most with, since their customer service is so good, the shipments fast to arrive and the shipping rates are maintained to a minimum. Roll, Misterkit and Hannan's Runway also provide fast service and a lot of OT stuff. I use them to get the datafiles. Never asked from anything from NKR -yet!- I'm sure that they have a friendly customer service too. I once got a rare kit from an outfit named "Luchvaart Hobby Shop" from the Netherlands that also has a wide variety of OOP kits, friendly feedback and quick shipping. Also buying direct from Pegasus is very fast: I get the kits into a week from ordering, and contrary to other people experiences, Chris Gannon always answered all my silly questions inmediatly after sending him an Email. On the other side, I once waited 2 months for a lousy air mail order from Squadron and once almost have to sell a kidney to pay the shipping costs of Hannant's stuff. Never again!

BTW, two weeks ago I ordered some of Eric's PE sets on Monday and they were waiting in my mailbox on Thursday. There is something strange with it: AFAIK Eric lives in USA, and I live in Poland. Three days across the Big Water? Incredible but true. The shipping fee was oridinary and exactly what I had experienced with other companies before contacting Eric. IMHO Eric provides the best web shoping services I have ever seen. Also I love his products. The PE sets I have received are really extraoridinary, and their prices are reasonable. May be his resin kits are a little bit too expensive for me, but smaller details are not much more expensive than Eduard or Part offering, and are really unique. I recommend CSM strongly. Tomasz PS.

For a LARGE outfit like SMO, packaging and time in preparing shipment should be factored into their prices. Their minimum postage rate is a ripoff, in my opinion. Also, one of the reasons I rarely order from Roll Models. Their minimum is over $6 for US domestic shipping!!! Their prices are good, but don't place a small order. Try Select Hobby Supply in Glastonbury, CT. They have a catalog that includes over 18,000 items!! They DO NOT have a website and you can only order the old-fashioned way. They have a pretty good selection and discount everything 25%. They carry lines like CMK, HIT, I think they are getting Aeroclub, as well as all of the larger manufacturers. They are great to deal with and they charge a flat $4.50 for domestic shipping, regardless of the size of your order and international shipping is at cost. I have been doing business with Al and Connie for over 10 years and have never been disapointed. Their phone number is 860-633-9064. No relation or interest, just a long-time satisfied customer. CSM's postage rates are about as fair as any I have done business with. Eric's service, combined with his products, make doing business with him very easy. IMHO, his kits are worth every penny you pay for them. That's why I have a jar hidden in my workshop that says "CSM" on it. When it's full, I'm ordering the 1 1/2 Strutter...Gotta get a bigger jar for the Gotha!!!! NKR, we all pretty much know about.

While working on my Jasta 15 Dr.I last year I asked him the same question. "You know the guy. Could you ask him how the heck he does the streaks on the DR1s?" He starts with a base of Humbrol - and enamel - although I'm not sure which color. Once completely dry, he then applies the streaks using Polly Scale's model rr color "Pullman Green". Since he's putting the acrylic over the enamel, he has a little bit of playing time. Plus, if he doesn't like how it came out, he just wipes the Pullman Green off and starts again. Basically that's it. Using the right size brush (sorry, don't know which size) he just keeps at it until it looks right to him. I couldn't get it to work, but that's because of my insistence on *not* using enamels in my airbrush. With at least one of the next Dr.I's I build, I'm going to dry using oils over Futured acrylics.

The hood-cowling is smoother on the racer, the tailplane is smaller and different shaped, and the floats are narrower. The big difference is the cockpit, I will have to move that backwards a centimetre or so. The floats might have to be scratchbuilt.
