Stevens Aero 1911-1/2 Nieuport (Toon)
The ToonScale 1911-1/2 Nieuport UM is the second in the Great Race! series of micro model aircraft kits from Stevens AeroModel. Unlike the previous Demoiselle, the Nieuport did not see action in the 1965 movie “Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines”. The Nieuport did, however, see plenty of action in air races of the period that the classic movie was based on.
The Stevens Aero version of the famous Nieuport is definitely a ToonScale version of this iconic aircraft and is in no way intended to be a scale replica. Inspiration for the Nieuport, and the rest of Stevens Aero “Great Race” series of models, came from the quirkiness, graceful beauty, and the sometimes “what were they thinking?” designs of early aviation. . . along with a huge dose of the classic aviation film “Those Magnificent Men in their Flying Machines”.
The kit includes:
- Precision laser cut parts
- Full size detail sheets with markings template
- Photo illustrated step-by-step assembly instructions
- Hardware package including push-rods, control horns, struts, receiver engine details, and spoked wheels.
