About this Plan

Sopwith Pup - Free flight scale gas model, for diesel motors up to 1cc. WWI biplane fighter. Pendulum controlled rudder shown, and sprung undercarriage. Scale is 1/12.

Quote: - "Powered with a Frog 100 diesel, but will fly with any engine of similar capacity, it was tested with a .9cc Clan engine which proved to be lacking in sufficient power. Simplicity and strength were the keynotes in the design, the undercarriage being sprung in the true scale fashion ie with rubber band shock absorbers. The wings and engine mounting can knock off in the event of a crash."

The u/c fairings wont work the way they are drawn as the cowl/engine mount is in the way. They would have to be shorter at the top than shown.

Looking at the front section it's ok because legs fairings are out of the cowl circle contour. The side fuselage show superimposed fairings to the engine cowl due to the perspective.

* Credit field

The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.


This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
