Product Description
This is a full-color 1:144 3D print of Nieuport 17 N3139 of  tenente Fulco Ruffo di Calabria of 70ª Squadriglia.  The first Nieuport 17's received from France were sent directly to top pilots in the Italian Air Service, including N3139.  The rudders and under-wings were painted over in Italian colors, but the top-wing roundels were simply (and not fully) painted over in white.  The eighteen-victory prince added the personal skull motif to the fuselage.

No painting is necessary -- this model comes printed in full color, ready to use.  It comes with an integral flight peg for mounting on game flight stands (not included), which can be carefully removed with a cutting tool, if desired.  The peg is designed for a fairly tight fit; you can file it down slightly if you prefer a looser fit.  The model does not come with a flight stand, maneuver deck, or plane card.  You can find an unofficial plane card for this plane in this paint scheme at https://linen.miraheze.org/wiki/File:N17-Ruffo-3139-card.jpg.

Material choice: High-Definition Full Color has a smoother, satiny surface and deeper colors; Full Color Nylon 12 (MJF) makes a less expensive alternative, with a rougher, matte surface and less deep blacks.  Both are robust materials and fine for gaming.   Attached here is a picture that shows the difference between the surfaces.  "Matte HDFC" and "Smooth FCN12" choices mean the prints are oversprayed in the factory, and the difference with the overspray is subtle.  You can find more material photos and comparisons at https://www.wingsofwar.org/forums/showthread.php?35581-Material-HDFC-vs-Full-Color-Nylon-12-(MJF).
