When Gustave Delage put pen to paper to create the Nieuport 11, little did he know that he was making a major contribution to the air war of World War One, as his design was originally intended to enter the Gordon Bennett Cup air race.  The outbreak of war changed all that and the Bebé, as it was soon nicknamed, would achieve its fame defending the skies over France.

The little biplane quickly became popular amongst aces like Fonck and Guynemer, for it had an excellent rate of climb and was extremely maneuverable.  The Nieuport 11, along with the D.H.2, mastered the Fokker Monoplane and helped win, for a time, air superiority for the Allies.

Superiority was what Lou Proctor looked for when he created his first museum scale kit in 1965.  If time would proved to be the test of a true classic, this would be it.  No scale model in history was won the U.S. National Championships once, followed by a repeat victory 22 years later, until August, 1989, when Dick Hansen repeated Lou Proctor's win with a victory in Precision Scale.  And to show that it was not just a fluke, Kim Foster did it again in 1990!  The Nieuport 11 has truly stood the test of time.

For many, Proctor's Nieuport 11 remains an all-time favorite.  A look inside the kit explains why.  Five sheets of detailed plans and a 32-page illustrated construction manual take step by step through the model's construction.  Proof of scale references are also provided.  Pre-formed aluminum landing gear and center section struts are jig drilled and ready for assembly.  All control horns, wing fittings, rigging and control cables, operable turnbuckles, spun aluminum cowl, decals, etc., are included.  The Spruce longerons are pre-formed, cut to length, and beveled.  Hundreds of wood parts are cut and shaped, ready for assembly.

For all the detail in this kit, it is not beyond the capabilities of the average modeler.  Many have chosen the NIeuport 11 as their first scale project with excellent results.

If a model ever had it all -- history, style, performance, and quality -- this is it.  Build yours today.  We need you at the front!
