Thierry Roussel's Nieuport 28 Project.

The Nieuport aircraft got their name from the well know French aircraft designer Édouard de Nié Port.

Thierry chose the well know Kicking Mule scheme adopted for the 95th Aero Squadron and one of these aircraft was know to have been flown by Lt. Sumner Sewall (a native of Maine). Sewall served in the American Ambulance Field Service during the war prior to enlisting in the American Air Service. The Kicking Mule logo appears on both sides of the aircraft.

This Nieuport Kit was purchased from Airdrome Aeroplanes. Anyone interested in such a kit should contact Robert Baslee. For more information please visit Airdrome's web site:
