Yes, I'm very tempted to get it, as recently I have gotten the RPM kit of the 155mm GPF M1918 cannon...

    Well done Kerry, you nearly nailed it, I thought Renault as soon as I saw that photo.

    Wouldn't a 1/72 scale model of one of those be nice.

    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.
