Flair Scout Series: Legionaire
Products Code: FL1022
is our scout series version of the famous Nieuport 17. Not a biplane, not a
monoplane but a sesquiplane the bottom wing being half the area of the top
wing. The Nieuport 17 was well respected by many pilots including aces such
as Guynemer, Nungessor, Bishop and Mannock during WW1.
Just like the real thing the model requires careful rudder control on take off but then becomes an absolute delight when in the air..
This superb example was built by Brad Lewis.
