43 Squadron Sopwith Snipe Early

Kit: WNW (1:32)

This is a sopwith Snipe as flown by 43 squadron RAF. In the WNW instructions they reference photo from their Web site and call for a Very Green PC 10 fuselage with the wings in PC12. I decided not to go with the suggestion as I couldn't really see the over paint as that much of a contrast. To be on the safe side I decided to paint 8015 as it "Probably" Looked in the final weeks of the war. ( The photos are from 1919) I went with PC 10 leaning to the brown side. I mixed a Gunze OD with a little red to bring in the brownish green tint. Rigging is 4lb test trout fishing line.
