Ease of Build:


The Nieuport 17 C.1 was a French sesquiplane (a bi-plane where one wing set has a smaller surface area than the other) used extensively in the First World War. It was an exceptionally maneuverable aircraft for the time and out-performed most of its opponents. Every Allied air force eventually deployed the Nieport 17 and it was even copied by the Germans - this allows for a myriad of paint schemes for the modeller!


This kit is a laser-cut replica of the original KK Small Flying Scale Series model of a Nieuport 17. Construction of the model from this kit uses the traditional method of "stick and tissue", that consists of a built up balsa wood skeleton (framework), covered with a tissue skin. The balsa frameworks are built over a plan that is printed at the exact scale of the model, which is in essence a real engineering drawing. Power is provided by rubber strip motor that is wound up before flight. Free flight means just that - once the model is launched, it is on its own. It must follow a predetermined flight path established when the model is initially adjusted for flight or "trimmed". This type of traditional building technique and flying requires a degree of patience and skill, but is extremely rewarding.
