I really like it, but can't ID it.

I'm guessing it's German......;)

How about a reproduction of a Nieuport 17 painted in German markings. It looks like it has a tail wheel.

Cool plane.

I looked through my books and the only picture I found of this plane was taken from top rear of the plane. If I had the time to read about all the planes I might have picked it right, seems it is a German copy of the Nuieports. If you like I can scan the picture in for you.

I keep finding more, but am probably at the end of discoveries for this plane - not much out there on it.

I like the four bladed prop, but it's nice to see it with a normal one, so a modeler wouldn't have to feel bad about not being authentic!
