Many of the French and British aces began their careers flying the Nieuport 17. The highly maneuverable "Superbébé" was a larger, improved version of the Nieuport 11. Like its predecessor, it was initially equipped with a Lewis gun but was upgraded to a synchronized Vickers machine gun. Helping end Germany's domination of the air war, the Nieuport 17 easily outclimbed and outperformed the Fokker E.III. The superior design was so successful that German high command ordered it copied. With 40 victories, English ace Philip Fullard scored more victories with the Nieuport 17, Nieuport 23 and Nieuport 27 than any other ace.

Mahogany Wood. Scale: 1/20. Wingspan 16 1/8 inches, Length 11 5/16 inches.
