1/3 Scale Nieuport 17*


Recently starring in the movie "Fly Boys" the Nieuport 17 got its start in the skies over France back in 1916. Though not a true biplane the Nieuport's "sesquiplane" (one and a half wing) configuration combined the strength and maneuverability of a biplane with the speed of a monoplane to create one of the most successful fighter of the First World War as demonstrated in the Fly Boys movie. Balsa USA now offers this fine aircraft in stunning 1/3 scale with all the performance and glory of the original Nieuport 17.
