Copper State Models have released their eagerly anticipated debut 1:32 kit, the Nieuport 17. The highly detailed model is available in two boxings, "Early" and "Late". Here we take a First Look at latter ahead of getting cracking on a full build.

Very nice review, Rowan. Hard to decide between the "early" and "late" models, but it sounds like a winner in any case. This may help offset the prejudice of WNW against French planes.

Cheers Bill

There's certainly no gainsaying that Nieuports and SPADs would sell like hotcakes if WNWs had them in their range. But it's great that their omission has meant an ideal opportunity for a small company to make their debut in 1:32 with a fine model of such an iconic fighter.

All the best

Agree 100% with the comments and review. Were mine in a WNW box you would never, ever, question if it was by someone else.

So, how about a 1/32 SPAD VII or XIII next CSM....?
