Aeromaster 48-745: Sopwith Triplanes at War pt 1

Units: See review




Scott Van Aken


Moving on to something a bit older than the norm, here is the first of two sheets on the Sopwith Triplane. To my knowledge, there is only the Eduard kit available. Fortunately, it is an excellent kit and offers few problems. All these planes are in PC 10 camo of Khaki upper and clear doped linen lower sides. The first two have unpainted metal cowls while the second two have them painted.

First up is a French version from the Centre d'Aviation Maritime Dunkirk in April 1917. Linen wheel coverings.

Next is 'Maud' from 8 NAS at St Eloi, France during Mid-1917. It has a blue fin and wheel coverings with a really neat read/white/blue fuselage band.

From 1 NAS comes white 4 from October 1917. Its color additions are a red fin and wheel covers.

Finally, 'Dusty', also from the 8 NAS. No special colors on this one though the wheel covers are Khaki and the fin clear doped linen. It also has a red fuselage band on it.

Insignia and common data markings for all aircraft.
