Thanks to all who followed and commented, as always its great motivation.
This is Sir Peters late Sopwith Snipe. It was every bit the bit-O-kit kit has been reported to be, and then some. Perfect engineering, great fit, crisp molding, great detail, and outstanding Cartograf decals that settled like a dream.
I started this project after having a couple of WIPs that took more R&D than building, or were just less than stellar fit, and this fit the bill perfectly as an OOB feel good build to get those modeling juices flowing, along with an actual sense of accomplishing/finishing something.
Here is a link to the WIP if anyone is interested in seeing how it came together:
WIP - WnW Sopwith Snipe - 17Sqn - Hawkinge 1924
Straight out of the box, with the exception of the Reynolds Wrap foil, Prym kintting in thread, Uschi rigging thread, and some Gaspatch ends for the support and control wires, here is my WnW late Sopwith Snipe.............Enjoy!
