Balsa USA 1/3 Sopwith Pup Partial Build
Great opportunity for a local guy to get a huge jump start on one of the best flying GIANT SCALE WWI birds out there! It hurts me to sell this one as WWI is my favorite era, but this one is just going to be too big for me to finish.
What you get is a 1/3 scale Sopwith Pup, that has had the fuselage and tail feathers, framed-up, and covered with an olive drab fabric, possibly solartex. Also included is three more full boxes of wood, hardare, flying wires, and spun aluminum cowl. Tail feathers have been attached, but could probably be removed without too much trouble. Cowl is untouched and only pulled out of the box for photos. Litho plate has been added to the forward fuselage area for a scale look, Wheels are included, the rubber says "Schleuter made in Germany" and are joined with duct tape in the middle, rims are from Sun Mfg., push rods for elevator and rudder have been installed, decals are also included, but they are not complete. For whatever reason the rudder striping and red centers to the roundels are missing. I did not see an instruction manual with this, but plans are there. Cabanes are installed and varnished.
This is a nice build folks, very straight and looks great. This is not an old build either. Wood is clean and fresh and looks new. Fabric is in excellent condition and has been expertly applied.
Local pick-up, can deliver up to 100 miles for cost of gas. $300 bones best offer!!
