1/144 Sopwith Triplane - Kampfflieger

1/144 Sopwith Triplane - Kampfflieger
A interesting, but short run and short lived aircraft largely seeing service with the RNAS (Royal Naval Air Service) in 1917, approx 147 were built (compated to the 5,400 Sopwith Camels produced), A note of merit would be the Canadian pilot Raymond Collishaw, scoring 34 of his eventual 60 victories in this aircraft, making him the top Triplane ace.


White Strong & Flexible: $ 8.74 (€ 6.07)
Frosted Ultra Detail:
$ 11.54 (€ 8.01)

Dont order this. It doesn't work, then Shape bloody ways cancel your order and you have to try and get your money back off them. Eeeerk!

Not my experience - I ordered a pair, and they arrived in Australia a week later.

Very impressed with the delicacy of the model - Robust and as detailed as some 1/72 kits.

Highly recommended. I've ordered some decals from Riviresco to go with them.
