Hi Bob,

Billy Bishop preferred the Nieuport 17...probably flew the Nie-11...
Snagged a great book on BBishop and some more paperbacks to trade with you next time we meet...

Bob, the S.E-5 you flew in WW1 combat with a O.S.LA.25 flew great against/with the 'pre production prototypes' back then. Even with the D-7's.

Any chance you have the spec.s ? And can post them on the WW1 Rules topic on this forum?

We are 'exploring the parameters' and so far have the planes pretty close in performance...the more information the better.

Have fun with the Proctor Nieuport, a great project. ( I'm sure I have seen scale pictures of them trailing streamers from their wing struts as unit markings...)

Hint, Hint, Hehehe. Always have a great time flying with you Bob...

Hope to see you soon,

Take care,
Have fun,

Crosscheck: I blew up a set of three views from the squadron book on SE 5's. I think the span was 42 inches. I set the dihedral and component outlines as taken from the enlarged scale 3 views. I did move the nose out by 1 inch to assist with balance and still had everything up at the front with a higley heavy hub. I gave the three views and the patterns away to Deadeye Mike since he had expressed his interest in building the SE 5. I won't be doing combat this year, but, I have really taken an interest in the WW 1 era and the planes and pilots. I got the Proctor kit from Eric, he had it around for a while. I have ordered a new OS 91 4 stroke and would like to take my time and see if I can come up with a really good job on completing this scale project. I think Bishop flew the 17 mostly prior to his squadron getting the SE 5's. The kit of the 11 that I got is 1/5 scale and hence is not quite as big a project as some other WW 1 kits that are 1/4 or even 1/3 scale. It is still quite a build up. Every rib is composed of webs and capstrips and there sure are a lot of bits and pieces. All control surfaces are operated by wires etc. I hope my skill and patience will allow a good job. It will certainly be different from the combat stuff and I don't think you will ever convince me to tie on a ribbon.
Best Regards, I hope to see you at one or another of the events even if I only drop by to spectate.
