Re: [WWI] can you move that bloody car?Well spotted guys! The Nieuport is a 10, one of several variants. The engine isn't a monosupape, because the double pushrods in front of each cylinder. It's probably a Clerget, which is often seen installed to Nieuport 12s, which might explain the non-standard, bulged sides cowl.Thanks for the PDF link! No, I haven't noticed this one before, that website is always a trove!

  The placement of the roundels (outside the struts) also seems non-
  standard and therefore probably early.

  Notice the family resemblance?  (See image 5)

    I agree with Steve; it's not a 12.  No center section in the wing plus
    it appears to have a seven-cylinder engine.  Moreover, the "bulge"
    that D sees in the cowl suggests it is powered by a 100hp Gnome
    Monosoupape and therefore likely a 10bis.  Diego, have you seen
    this paper in your travels?  Malheureusement, I don't read French:

      I'd go for a 10, the 12 had a transparent centre section, and shots of the 12 taken from a similar angle show much more slope on the interplane struts

        It also shows how the wooden structure in the wings still shows thru the CDL despite what appears to be a cloudy day.
        Neiuport 10 or 12? - Sorry Diego - Pass.

        Good photo despite the smug guy in the way. Shows how thin those wings need to be.
        And it's a nice car.
