Show us your........ Sopwith Pup
« on: July 22, 2012, 11:20:18 AM »
I have been looking at some builds lately and thought that a thread featuring specific aircraft would be of use to people contemplating a particular model. Feel free to post your Sopwith Pup picture here or start another  "Show us your...." thread!
I'd like to start this one off with my Eduard 1/48 sopwith pup. (This was the reboxed Flashback version)
Decals are my own artwork printed on an ALPS printer by Pete's Hangar here in Australia.

EDIT: There are some photos of the build here: Sopwith Pup - Flashback 1/48
And some more pics of it on my website.

I remember this little beauty from our days on the 'drome, Paul.  This has always been one of my favorite Pup models of all time.  Could you please post a few more photos?

Here are my Pups, Mono and Le Rhone.  Both new 1/48 Aeroclub releases.  Really nice injected kits based on the old Aeroclub vac.

Hey Bud,
These are just great - I particularly like the red on Betty.

As you say, my pup appeared on the 'drome. I have added a link to the build article which I think this thread would be great for - add a link to your own builds to make "Show us your...." threads all the more useful!

I know you have a build Des - in fact, here it is: http://www.ww1aircraftmodels.com/page13.html

I'm glad you posted this one  Bud!

I must get round to finishing the three I have on the stocks - the Eduard 48th one I started in 2008.... (and which led to the start of Pheon!) and the WNW one with the Mono cowl and engine and an Aeroclub one in 48th.

Carpo, any chance you could email me what photos you have of the Dragon Pup? (pheon.models@hotmail.co.uk) - I feel this one should be available in 32nd scale decal form - along with Brad's favourite with the family of Kookaburras and a few others... I feel a second volume of Trainers and Pets coming on!

I've just recently posted my Airfix 1:72 Pup, so I went out and took a couple of new pics just for this thread! Vickers and wheels from Aeroclub, control horns are PART, the rest is the kit (plus a few modifications/improvements!)

Thanks, Paul and Rowan.  Yes, Rowan.  You need to finish the Pup that led to the creation of Pheon.  She was so close to being finished when I last saw her and she's such a beauty.
Your Pup is Brilliant, Des.  I've often dropped in on your site to take a peek at her.  Gorgeous.
Very nice work in the micro scale, Ian.  Outstanding rigging.
Cheers,
Bud

Here's mine, Naval Version. A.W. "Nick" Carter's Baby Mine of 3 Naval Sqn in 1917. Still my favorite WNW Kit!

Here's my WNW RFC Pup - my first serious WW1 build.  Not my best to date but I'd happily build another, given time...

Here's my first ever biplane kit, the WnW Pup, finished in June 2011. She's pretty rough but after 30+ years of building AFVs, I was pretty happy that I managed to rig and finish it.









Cheers,

Chris

Mine is from Airfix, 72nd scale. The biggest issue was levelling of the trenches imitating the tightened linen on the ribs. I used MagicSculp to this end. I have also added some interior. The decals are from Rowan - his first set.
