Proctor Enterprises Nieuport 17

(Click on the images to enlarge.)

The Nieuport 17 will certainly be remembered as one of the finest fighters of World War One.  Campaigned by the British, Belgian, Italian, and Russian air services, as well as the famed Lafayette Escadrille, the Nieuport 17 was the ship choice for aces Ball, Bishop, Guynemer, Mannock, Nungesser and others.  Its superiority was so clear that the Germans, in desperation, captured and then copied the design.  The demand for the Nieuport 17 exceeded supply, and it wasn't long before production began Italy and Russia as well as its native France.

Powered by both the 110HP LeRhone and the 130HP Clerget, the Nieuport 17 sported various armament configurations, the most popular being a single Vickers on the cowl and a Lewis on the top wing.

The strength of the Nieuport 17 was its lack of weaknesses.  Some knowledgeable historians will argue that the single lower wing spar was its Achilles' heel, but numerous modifications would be made to minimize wing flutter in all but the most severe conditions.

Given the many virtues of the Nieuport 17, it is easy to see why it makes such a great model.  The stance and proportions of this ship are just right.  If the blue skies over France are calling you, why not build yours today?
