BALSA USA KIT No 418 1/6 SCALE SOPWITH PUP

British Woprld War I Biplane Fighter

The Sopwith Pup was one of the most famous World War I fighters. It is remembered as the best flying aircraft of World War I, a tribute to the Sopwith design philosophy of simple and aerodynamically clean structure. Pilots who flew this aircraft apparently looked upon it as an offspring of the 1-1/2 Strutter and dubbed it as the "pup" Its little known offical name is a faithful reproduction of this early aircraft.
