You're welcome, Steve. I know that Jamo took some shots of the Tripe's inspection ports. I've seen them, but I just haven't found them yet. Now that I think of it, they may be on the Vintage Aviator site. Check there. 
Cheers, 
Bud

Thanks Bud. Thats the kinda shot im looking for. Im seriously lacking in Tripe references, but i cant imagine they are much different on the Camel. Good shot of the Rotheham pump too. Im gonna scratch one and use a cut down plastic kit prop mounted so it will spin in flight. 
Guess i have to fire up the computer, searching the web for references is a pain on this phone.

Hei, 

The Sopwith Triplane seems to have an unusual arrangement with one large inspection window centre and two smaller ones under the roundel. 
Getting pictures from above a Sopwith Triplanes top wing is a tall order - I haven`t found any good images on my disks.

Does anyone know of any photos of the aileron pulley inspection ports on the wings? Im looking for a straight on shot looking down into the port showing the pulley and cable. Specifically, im looking for one on a Sop Tripe. The lady who makes custom vinyl graphics says she can print photographic images and i want to use a graphic recessed into the wing, rather than scratching each port. The model is 45", so the ports arent that small. 
TIA
