DB S&S Sopwith Pup

Hi all!

Anybody out there with experience of the Sopwith Pup by DB sport and scale. I was thinking of buying one for next winters building season. How true to scale is it? Quality of the parts? I believe one of the larger AXI's would haul it nicely...

Micke, You might find it better to post in the IC forum..........maybe large scale!

Good luck.

They also do a S600 size model Farnboro


if this is what Lusha is asking about.

He also does a S600 Tiger moth


I have never built one nor seen a plan but I have read that David Boddington has a reputation for over engineering (too heavy). I would be interested in others views that have seen them however.

We had a Club talk by the owners of this business a few months ago.........
They bought with them most of their kits, I was impressed by their business values.
They now include instructions in German for some(not sure if all ?) of the kits.
They do look complete, and well made...........worth a look, but a large Axi would not be needed in the 40inch Pup.......midsize 2814/x would do.

Not sure about the scale fidelity !..
