If someone does, I'll buy them. I'm thinking of a 6" nutball.

Pete,
It does look like my Nieuport, but without the skeletonizing. I posted the drawing for that one in its thread. If it was a useful starting point for this Nieuport, I'm happy.

BTW, I need to make a new lower wing for my Nieuport and get it back in the air, just haven't had the time.

Yes. It's using Gordon's designs. Many thanks to Gordon's share. But the skeletonizing is hard to me. Sorry for my chinglish The weight is 10.35g without landing gear.

Very cool.

And your chinglish is fine . It's MUCH better than my Mandarin or Cantonese.
