Sopwith Dolphin Walkaround
« on: May 17, 2012, 03:30:16 PM »
These photos of the Sopwith Dolphin were taken by Francis Chapman at the RAF Museum, Hendon. My many thanks and appreciation to Francis for sending these photos to David Wilson who in turn passed them on to me and gave me permission to use them on the forum.

An outstanding assortment of nicely detailed photos there and a huge thanks from me as well. The cockpit detail photos are especially useful.

I just hope Wingnuts has added this wonderful machine to its "to do" list? Fingers crossed!

cheers

Very nice spread, in fact outstanding! I'm with Dave, hopefully the good folks at WNW will have this on their "to do" list sooner rather then later. Many Thanks to Francis for providing them and Thank You Des for the post; great stuff!
Cheers,
Lance

  Des,
Many thanks to you and Francis for these excellent Sopwith Dolphin photos. I'd bet Bud will be drooling studying these shortly.
Highest Regards,
