Sgt. Larsson's N11: "Sparrow Hawk"

Recommended Posts



Greetings All,


Now that my flying computer is back online, I had the itch to do a custom skin for my current campaign pilot, Sgt. Albert Larsson of the Lafayette Escadrille. We are currently flying Nieuport 11's in April of 1916 and our "insigne de l'escadron" at this time is the crescent moon and star. Sgt. Larsson, upon his first flight in an N11, commented on how the nimble little craft swoops and soars just like the sparrow hawks he used to watch growing up on his family farm. This prompted the young flyer to find an illustration of said bird of prey, and he came across an excellent James Audobon example in one of the magazines of the day. He set to painting it onto the sides of his craft, and then added a double pair of blue stripe to the top plane as well.







His squadmates commented on how "tre magnifique" his bus now looks.








(Man! Do I love this sim.)
