Having been out of the market for 1/72nd WWI model aircraft more years than I care to remember, I am surprised at the number of old kits available via eBay. Some times, the models are quite inexpensive too but I have seen others command high prices. For $6 including shipping, this Entex Nieuport 17C was a bargain.One recent kit won on eBay is the Entex Pocket Pak Bi-Planes Nieuport 17C. A fine little model, this is the first N17C to make it into the collection and the first Entex model. The kit was likely produced in the 1970s so is at least 40 years old. Surprising that these old kits are still around. This one arrived unbuilt with the box in great shape.
The kit was easy to build. For a paint scheme, I attempted to impart a distressed look. The result looks distressed to my eye.
