Sopwith Pup 1921 Aerial Derby + Arctic Decals- 1/72

Recommended Posts

From two years ago, an unlikely racer.

 

A little divertimento based on an affordable and readily available kit, with a twist.

I found a brief article on the issue #5 of The Aviation Historian magazine on this little racer that participated in the 1921 Aerial Derby in England, with even a drawing of the scheme it had at the time. How could one resist!

The Airfix Pup is surprisingly detailed for a 1973 kit and although far from perfect, it's an encouraging starting point. Decals came from Arctic Decals in Finland.

New tricks for an old dog.

An unusual subject, but well executed for such a tiny model, and it looks great within the display. The period car and lady set it off nicely. 👍

Lovely little Pup.  Looks like most of the paint colours were used too!

That is one very unusual Pup! I like the colour scheme very much, and as Bill has commented, the display with the engine, car and lady really set an interesting scene.

 

Sadly the Airfix Pup wings do not improve with age....
