time lapse of a nieuport 28

This is a really neat video of the construction process of a Airdrome Airplanes Nieuport 28. Its well worth the watch. I'm currently in the process of building a Fokker DR1 from Airdrome Airplanes.

What a terrific video.

I know it takes A LOT OF WORK to build an airplane, but this video really drives that home. I'm tired just from watching it.

Tiny bit disappointed that we didn't get to see it fly. But that's a nitpick.

Big thanks to the builder for sharing this with us.

Well if I'd known it took less than 10 minutes to build a plane I might have done it earlier! That was cool!

That's one way to satify the requirement to document the build process.

I love the freedom that E-AB gives (like avionic choice, not needing two years of school and FAA tests to be qualified to change a spark plug), but am not sure I trust my own construction abilities, nor would buy one already built.

Honest question - was the wall mirror used in the build process (maybe for alignment?), or did it just happen to be there?

Thanks for pointing out this video- I really enjoyed watching it and thinking back to my building days. Kit systems really make the scrounging necessary years ago a non-issue now.

Got a kick out of seeing the crane get the fuselage out of his back yard! I've known guys that had to take out windows, widen doorways, even install French doors, just to get a project out of their house. The French door guy's wife was really looking forward to completion of that project so she'd get the door system she'd been promised.

I loved hearing that Rotec fire up and run. Being an ol' Warner engine lover, I'll have to look a little closer at that thing.
