Hi Marek,

I´m not sure if it is indeed a difference between French and Italian Ni.11s, but I think it´s worth to check the wing rib battens of the  particular plane you´re modeling...if there are photos showing them. I´ve found that some machines had rib tapes and another ones seem to have wires around the ribs, specially the first two ribs of the lower wings. You can appreciate those differences on the Datafile Special on Nieuports...
