World War I saw the airplane transition from a rarely seen oddity to a commonplace and necessary piece of military equipment. Numerous designs were tried by all sides in the attempt to gain an advantage. The French Nieuport 17 was such a design. This fighter was used by all of the Allies and was so feared by the Germans that they ordered copies produced for their pilots. This Black Hawk Models kit builds an impressive replica of this famous aircraft and comes with markings for both American and British squadrons.
