OK, fair enough. I thought I was not seeing something that someone else had seen. I have the box top but who knows the source or inspiration for that.

      So, is there any consensus on the top wing's


    Yes. There's no conclusive photographical proof that the
    snake-painted Nieuport had the transparent cover. Therefore, Shane
    shall build it as a regular covered upper wing Nieuport 17.


    PS: The boxtop that shows the transparent upper wing *might* be
    based on a captured Nieuport 17 from the same unit (but completely
    unrelated personal markings) that had that feature. Or perhaps the
    boxtop illustration was designed to feature one cool alternative of
    decor coupled with a nice alternative of the wing.
