No, but I have drooled over both and have a couple of thoughts on them. A friend built the 28 and I got to be quite familiar with it during construction.

Proctor stuff is VERY scale and unfortunately that means heavier than necessary - witness Dave Grife's 1/4 scale DVII. Your best bet is to buy the plans from them, and maybe some of the custom parts, and scrtach build.

Stephan, I think you are talking about the 1/5 scale Nieuport 11. This is a pretty good conversion as the original was a very simple, and therefore light, aircraft. The N.28 is bigger, (1/4 scale), and a lot more complex.

I think the British magazines have had these. You might want to check with Trapplett.
