The late Frank Tallman, arguably one of the most diversified pilots ever to climb into a cockpit, once wrote of the Nieuport 28 C-1, "I share the feelings of others lucky enough to fly the '28' -- that it certainly is the epitome of World War One flying and possesses the loveliest lines of all World War One aircraft."

For all its striking good looks, the Nieuport 28 C-1 will be best remembered as the machine which equipped the first American fighter squadrons.  297 were purchased by the American Expeditionary Force, with the first being delivered in March, 1918.

American history was made when Lieutenants Douglas Campbell and A. Winslow each shot down a German fighter, eventually making them two of the first American aces.  Captain Eddie Rickenbacker, greatest of the American aces, scored several of his twenty-six victories in a Nieuport 28.

Lou Proctor was so taken with the Nieuport 28's historical significance and graceful lines that, in 1979, he set out to duplicate the famous French fighter in one-quarter scale.  When world-class modelers like FAI team member Bob Hanft called it the finest kit he ever built, we felt that the years of work had been worth the effort.

Four sheets of detailed plans and an illustrated 42-page construction manual introduce you to the kit.  All woods and veneers have been carefully selected.  Spruce wing spars have been routed to I-beams, cut to length, beveled and drilled for the strut-mounting brackets.  Longerons and wing tip bows are pre-formed.  All hardware is included and features operable turnbuckles, machined fittings, multi-strand rigging and control cables and scale hinge assemblies.  The scale landing gear is pre-formed aluminum, jig drilled and ready for assembly as are the aluminum center-section struts.  A 10-inch spun aluminum cowl can accommodate a wide variety of engines including multi-cylinder radials.

Should you decide to compete with Nieuport 28 C-1, rest assured that it is a seasoned veteran in nearly every major competition worldwide.  We realize, however, that nearly half of all Nieuport 28 C-1s will never see the heat of battle, but will instead be displayed uncovered in their proud owners homes or offices.  Either way, Proctor's Nieuport 28 C-1 is a winner!
