6 models, 5 modellers - Tony, having built the Academy Camel before, volunteered to build both of them. The remaining kits are those produced by Wingnut Wings. Why two Camels and two Pups - simply to have a RFC and RNAS representative of each. Had other Sopwith aircraft been available, we may well have only done one example of each. If Wingnut Wings produce a 1 1/2 Strutter then this may get added to the collection in the future.
We chose the following 6 representative aircraft available from the kit decal sheets:
Sopwith Triplane N534 "F", FHM Maynard (6 Victories), RP Minifie (21 victories), RS Dallas (32 Victories), 1(N) Sqn RFC, August 1917 - built by Dave Haskell.
Sopwith Pup, A7327 "1", Standard built, Capt SH Pratt, 46 Sqn RFC, June-July 1917 - built by Dave Turner.
Sopwith Pup, N6185 "ANZAC", Sopwith built, FSLt. CJ Moir, 4(N) Sqn, RNAS, April-May 1917 - built by Brian Boot.
Sopwith Snipe (Early), E8069 "2", TCR Baker, B Flight, 4 Sqn AFC (12 Victories), October 1918 - built by Chris Shepherd.
