Re: Photo Spad

Hello,


Currently on ebay is a photo of an Italian Spad S.XIII S.29** at:


https://www.ebay.it/itm/Foto-aeronau...EAAOSwEW9f-zLs


Strangely it has the number No.200 at the base of the rudder which wouldn't appear to be from the normal Italian serial range.


Regards,


Clint

Re: Photo Spad

Hi Nick,


Thanks, that makes sense. I should have thought of that with '200' even though I couldn't read the Hp. One more mistake to avoid in future!


Regards,


Clint

Re: Photo Spad

Hi Clint. Look like S.VIIs; but no "half-moon" round the insignia. They seem to have had SPADs and N.XVIIs at the same time .

Re: Photo Spad

Hi Nick,


Very possibly you are correct. I find it quite different to differentiate between the two types. Anyway since posting the above I've come across another photo of, lets call it a Spad, this time of SPA 37 at:

Re: Photo Spad

Hi Clint.




Read SPA 150 not 37.

Re: Photo Spad

Clint. Main difference is the rounded rudder on the XIII.

Re: Photo Spad

Hi Nick,


Indeed, and straight cabane struts on the S.VII. I look forward with trepidation to posting my next Spad S.VII/S.XIII.Hopefully with a correct id.



Regards,


Clint
