Sopwith Aircraft
by Bob Laskodi


Collishaw's Sopwith 1-1/2 Strutter

The model is Copper States Sopwith 1 1/2 Strutter in 1:48 scale done as Ray Collishaw's early mount. Full build details can be found at Internet Modeler.


Collishaw's Sopwith 1-1/12 Strutter (Roden)

The model is the new issue 1/48 Roden Sopwith Strutter done as Ray Collishaw's aircraft. Nicely detailed model, but fairly tough to build (much like early Eduard's). Hopefully, Roden will release more 1/48 scale stuff in the near future. Full build details can be found at www.airandseamodels.com (a subscription modeling e-zine).

Sadly, this has been my only OT model so far this year!
