The Nieuport 28 presents well in the air and flies nicely. This is a large WW I biplane with plenty of drag and requires power at all times to avoid problems.

fly this Giant
Scale WW I
The Maxford USA Nieuport 28 is modeled after the aircraft flown by Edward Vernon Rickenbacker, or
“Captain Eddie,” as he liked to be called.
Rickenbacker was America’s leading
World War I ace with 26 confirmed
victories ( 22 aircraft and four balloons)
as well as a Medal of Honor recipient.

Maxford previously released a 68-inch
span Nieuport 28 which was finished in
the colors of Quentin Roosevelt. The 70-
inch Rickenbacker Nieuport 28 reviewed
here has incorporated several changes
and improvements. When searching for
information or flight videos, you may
find details on either aircraft.
Maxford USA provides all of its
manuals online and they can be easily
downloaded in PDF format. The
Nieuport 28 manual is 16 pages and
should be thoroughly read before
beginning the build. Because the manual
is available online, we will only touch on
some of the assembly process steps.
The landing gear comes preassembled
and needs to be installed onto the aircraft
and the wheels mounted on the axle.
A landing gear retainer slides into the
rear opening in the fuselage and after
the lower wings are installed, it’s held
in place by a clear plastic wing/landing
gear retainer. When you are comfortable
