Wingnut Wings 1/32 Sopwith Snipe - 17Sqn - Hawkinge 1924

By Brian Leitch

This is Sir Peter's 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.

Build thread: WnW Sopwith Snipe - 17Sqn - Hawkinge 1924

Straight out of the box, with the exception of the Reynolds Wrap foil, Prym knitting-in thread, Uschi rigging thread, and some Gaspatch ends for the support and control wires.
