Glenn Burt Sopwith Pup Project:

The photo opposite shows Glen with his completed Airdrome Aeroplanes Sopwith Pup which took to the skies July 2011. .

The Sopwith Pup (Full Scale) Kit was purchased from Airdrome Aeroplanes. Anyone interested in such a kit should contact Robert Baslee. For more information please visit Airdrome's web site:

The Sopwith Pup was a British single seater biplane fighter aircraft built by the Sopwith Aviation Company. It entered service with the Royal Flying Corps and the Royal Naval Air Service in the autumn of 1916. With pleasant flying characteristics and good manoeuvrability, the aircraft proved very successful. The Pup's docile flying characteristics also made it ideal for use in aircraft carrier deck landing and takeoff experiments.

The kit you get from Airdrome Aeroplanes is complete in every way up to your final colour coat. The kit and the excellent builder support you will receive from Airdrome Aeroplanes will get you in the air in a fraction of the time needed to build other WW-1 replica aircraft. No hunting for parts or waiting for shipments. Airdrome Aeroplanes' kits have it all!! All nuts, bolts, rivets, gusset plates, machined plugs, tubing and any other hardware are included in the kits. Airdrome as a Rotec agent will source your Radial radial and provide full support towards flight behind the Rotec.

You can get much more information about this kit... just give Airdrome Aeroplanes a call ...
