1/5 Nieuport-28 Gas/Glow/EP ARF 

 

The Nieuport 28 was a French biplane fighter flown during World War I. It was designed by Gustave Delage and built by Nieuport, also known as Nieuport-Delage – a French airplane company famous for racers before World War I and fighter aircraft during World War I and between the wars.
 
The Nieuport 28 was the first aircraft to see service in any American fighter squadron. Declared “surplus” by the French, the Nieuport 28 was offered to the United States and was immediately accepted by the American Expeditionary Force. A total of 297 Nieuport 28s were put into service in the 27th, 94th, 95th and 103rd Aero Pursuit Squadrons. Several well-known WWI American pilots, including 26-victory American ace Captain Eddie Rickenbacker flew Nieuport 28s.

**For EP set up: Li-Po batteries for electric power may be inserted through the cockpit hatch, slid forward, and carried inside the engine mounting box where a fuel tank would normally go; or the batteries may be placed inside the cowl next to the engine mounting box –the cowl easily comes off with our ‘Max-Cowling’ connection. Placing the batteries inside the cowl will require removal of the propeller to slide the cowl off to charge the batteries.
