Nieuport 12

Nieuport 12

The model presented here is based on Nexus 3-view drawings from England that are available in the U.S. from Bob Holman Plans Service. Recently, an Albatross Publications “DataFile” was published on the Nieuport 12, and I recommend it as the best source of scale information. The model came about due to a couple things. First was the success and attractiveness of a 38-inch Speed 4000 version I built several years ago. Second was the availability of the ModelAir Tech 3.6:1 belt drive, which I powered with a DeWalt drill motor. The idea of building an IMAA-legal airplane and powering it with a $110 drive system was too good to resist!

  1. Ok; I bought the plans for this plane YEARS ago, and I’m ready to build it.
    The plans are pretty legible, but the instruction sheet is pretty illegible. Also; where do i purchase a dewalt drill motor, and a drive system for this plane. I really appreciate your information. Thank you. Brad Hawkins.
