Balsa USA 1/6 Scale Nieuport 17 Kit No. 413

French World War  Sequaplane Fighter

While most 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 fighters of the First World War as demonstrated in the Fly Boys movie!

This Stunning 1/6 scale has all of the performance and glory of the original Nieuport 17!!
