BALSA USA KIT No. 420 1/4 SCALE SOPWITH PUP
British World War I Biplane Fighter
The Supwith Pup was one of the most famous World War Fighters. It is remebered as the best flying aircraft of World War I, a tribute to the Sopwith design philosophy of simple and aerodynamically clean structure. Pilots who flew this aircraft apparently looked upon is as an offspring of the 1-1/2 Strutter and dubbedit as the “Pup.” Its little known official name is the Sopwith Type 9901. Our model is a faithful reproduction of this early aircraft.
