Show us Your Sopwith Dolphin
« on: September 03, 2019, 07:46:54 AM »
I was surprised that there wasn't already a thread on this so if I somehow missed one in about the 7 times I checked I will delete this ? I will start it off with My WNW 19 squadron build with Pheon Decals used. I hope to see some of the Many other great Dolphin builds from this site( and others)

She's truly stunning, Amigo!  I love this scheme and you've done a magnificent job with it.  Makes me want to do this one myself one day.
Cheers,
Bud

Well, Rick started it!  This is the old Blue Max 1/48 kit done about 10 years ago in my favorite markings  ;).

Outstanding work on a plane that we know has personal attachments Bud! The Old Aerodrome Thread certainly brings back Memories!

Excellent model of an aircraft that does not get much attention.   Your build log is  very informative and I often use WNW instructions and build logs to guide me in 1/72 scale.

Sopwith 5F.1 Dolphin, Copper State Models 1/48
« Reply #7 on: May 17, 2020, 02:24:29 AM »
This is the third Dolphin in this thread, but sorry - again the blue C3799 of Capt Irving. It's so nice in blue.
It is the great Copper State Models kit in 1/48, with some additions.

Wikipedia says: A model is a simplified representation of reality.
So I create downscaled originals.

What a beauty she is, Frank!  Like I said in Rick's thread, I want to do this scheme next, probably using the CSM kit.
Cheers,
Bud
