New work - "Snipe Fury"
« on: February 21, 2014, 05:56:08 AM »
Introduced into service during the final weeks of the war, the Snipe was last Sopwith production aircraft to see service during the war. Featuring a 220 hp Bentley BR.2 rotary engine, cutout upper wing center section and double bay wings, the Snipe was a rugged aircraft that performed well in combat.

This particular aircraft, E8050, was flown by Capt. E.R. King of No. 4 Sq. AFC. King scored his final 8 victories of the war in this aircraft.

Exquisite artwork Russell. I especially admire the look of movement of the turning propeller. Masterly done!

Kind regards
Patrick
