We are used to seeing SPAD 13 with squared-off wingtips, but all of the SPAD 13s produced in 1917 had rounded wingtips, including all of those used by the RFC. The French produced ply wingtip extenders that -- when sewn to the wing -- produced a more square profile, but it wasn't until spring of 1918 that SPAD 13s were produced with the familiar (mostly) square wing. This model represents a SPAD 13 in a typical 1917 configuration, with rounded wing-tips, holes in the cowl bottom, and no fairing over the forward drag wire. Several hundred SPAD 13s were built in this style.
This product comes in 1:144 and 1:285/6mm/1:288 scales. The 1:285 product contains two aeroplanes
and detachable propeller disks rather than propeller blades. They are joined by disposable links to keep the price down, since single-part models are more affordable. You can break the links with nail clippers, wire cutters, or similar.
