Nieuport Sesquiplan Speed record racer

Nieuport Sesquiplan Speed record racer

An old vacform kit of the Nieuport Sesquiplan, that was the firts aircarft to fly above 200 mph, piloted by French pilot Sadi Lecointe.

The kit was from Air Craft Models, a British cottage industry vacform. Being of the "female" molds type (i.e. the parts are sucked into receeses in the molds, it was a great kit, precise, and easy to deal with, unlike most vacs.

Sadi Lecointe was one of the most well-known aviators of his time and considered a true hero in France.

Hence the title of the small vignette "The hero and his steed".
