TOPIC: Nieuport-Delage NiD-29V "Vitesse" references?

Nieuport-Delage NiD-29V "Vitesse" references? 2 months 3 weeks ago #152

Good day race fans,

I was wondering if someone could point me to (print likely; I seem to have exhausted the Internet) references on the Nieuport-Delage NiD-29V "Vitesse" racers of the early '20s? Having an especially difficult time with color profiles for them.

Thanks very much,
Andy

Hi Andy,

your best bet for planes of this era is The Speed Seekers by Foxworth; definitely a book worth having. I haven't checked if it has color information on the 29V but if you want me to I'll check

Hah! Yes. Thanks Axel. I recently purchased a used copy. There is this B/W drawing of the first one piloted by Sadi-Lecointe. Mostly black, but then there are parts that are not-black. And I can't seem to determine what the not-black color was.

I don't have this book yet, which I've seen cited as a reference on the Net:

www.amazon.com/dp/2848900717/_encoding=U...&colid=1PSISVCTSDHM5

The price, and my French being not so good, have discouraged me a bit. :)

Hi Andy,

Do you know bookfinder.com? You can find the book a lot cheaper that way (fe $52 on amazon.de)

As for your french: you can probably find a good course there as well :-)
