The latest Datafile from Albatros Productions serves as a timely reminder of just what an attractive modelling subjects the Nieuport Nighthawk, Nightjar and Sparrowhawk family make. With only 1:72 versions available (as far as I know), the market's wide open for larger scale kits, and Colin Owers' informative text is accompanied by a plethora of period photos, specially produced plans, plus spectacular Ronny Bar artwork to inspire more models of this oft-overlooked fighter. It might be too much to expect a WNW 1:32 mainstream kit, but maybe Silver Wings?...
WINDSOCK DATA FILE No 160 - NIEUPORT NIGHTHAWK
by C A Owers

"HAD ‘The Great War' continued into 1919, the radial-engined Nieuport Nighthawk may well have ousted the Sopwith Snipe as the Royal Air Forc&s premier Front-line fighter. It was not to be: a few examples went out to the Middle East, others converted to air racers, yet more to the Japanese Navy for shipborne trials. All this and more is carefully chronicled by Colin Owers in our 160th DATA FILE that includes over 70 rare archive photos. There are also detailed 1:48/1:72 scale plans, airframe sketches and superb profiles by Ronny Bar illustrating nine colourful examples of the Nighthawk from 1917-1 923 - all topped off by Paul Monteagle's brilliant cover. Another great addition to this long-running and popular series!
