22% 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.

This model of the Nieuport 28 is a new design and a lot better than previou V1.0 and 1.1 68" product. It is constructed mainly of laser-cut balsa and light ply, and it is finished with a Mylar film covering patterned after the "Hat in the Ring" aircraft flown by the 94th Aero Squadron’s ace, Eddie Rickenbacker. There is also a 40" wingspan available here.

*The ARF does NOT include Machine Guns and pilot. You could purchase the special designed Machine Gun set for this Nieuport or the 1/5 Vickers .303 Gun.
**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 and there is plenty of room around the motor box for the 7S/2P 2200 mAh batteries we used to power the 900W motor shown in the flying video. Placing the batteries inside the cowl will require removal of the propeller to slide the cowl off to charge the batteries.
Really nice ARF

Well..this my first Maxford plane and I have to say I'm very impressed!
Quality of materials and build are really top notch,
Instructions were very good and plane is pretty darn close to scale...I'm setting mine up electric as are all my planes.
Pretty sure I'm going to be a Maxford customer on a regular basis...can't wait to see what they come up with next...maybe a Fokker D8....that would be cool!
Thanks again, Bob Dunlop
