Hobbycraft 1/32 Nieuport 17

I replaced the kit intake tubes with aluminum tubing.  The rigging is E Z Line.  The kit decals were useable but a bit translucent in some spots, mostly white, though I did
 have a self induced hiccup with the rudder decal.  I mounted the engine on a brass tube so I could position it a bit more forward in the cowl.  For a biplane this one is on the
 simpler end of the spectrum but due to approximate fits on the cabanes and landing gear it has its interesting areas.  It does look pretty well aligned to my eye.  Not sure how
 I managed that but I will accept the result.  Rigging was complicated by the unusual location of the lower roundels on the Nie 17, on the lower surface of the upper wing.
