Cheeri-O Terri,

You are producing outstanding models! Your Hanriots, Fokker, Pfalz, you are producing models the way I can only dream that mine would turn out. And in the correct era!

Your simulation of varnish, and dope on linen, and woodgrain...wow.

You and the other canvas falconer fashioners are adding a genre to this site other ones do not match, IMHO.

Such a pretty little plane. And so deadly!

Super work, Terri. Nice metal effect on the cowl and wood effect on the prop.

Keep 'em flying.

Hi Terri:
Nice work, I really like your turnbuckles, I will be trying that soon. I think the pilots name was Navarre. I have the 1976 Aurora Issue of the Nieuport II and those markings are similar to the optional markings in the kit. I have mine posted in the photo section.
It is a neat airplane and you did a great job, especially seeing as it was a redo!
