HR Models 1/72 Belgian Nieuport 11/16 Decals
by Bob Pearson
One country which has long been forgotten by the WW1 kit transfer community is Belgium, however this release by HR Models addresses that lack.. The set includes roundels and rudder stripes for one complete aircraft with markings for five Nieuport 11/16s included. The options presented include the aircraft of Lt P Anciaux (SOIT!); Lt A de Neef (VAMPIRE), Lt E Thieffry (Comet); Unknown (FOX-TROT); and Lt Willy Coppens (Paper bird).
A single page of b/w side view profiles show the marking placement and also describe the colours worn by the particular pilot. The decals themselves are nicely registered and are printed by MPD. They should add some variety to anyone's collection of WWI scouts.
My thanks to Lubos Vinar for the review sample.
