This is a full-color 1:144 3D print of a Salmson 2 of 1st Aero Squadron, U.S. Air Service, as flown by Lieutenant William P. Erwin and Byrne V. Baucom.  Erwin was America’s two-seater Ace of Aces, with eight recognized victories and another claimed, spread among three different observers.  The white cowl rings and forty-eight star flags are unit markings.  705 Salmson 2’s were purchased by the Americans, and 557 made it to the front lines, making it the most important two-seater in the US war effort.
