Sopwith 7F.1 Snipe

history
The Sopwith 7F.1 Snipe was a British single-seat biplane fighter of the Royal Air Force (RAF). It was designed and built by the Sopwith Aviation Company during the First World War, and came into squadron service a few weeks before the end of that conflict, in late 1918.

The Snipe was not a fast aircraft by the standards of its time, but its excellent climb and manoeuvrability made it a good match for contemporary German fighters.

It was selected as the standard post-war single seat RAF fighter and the last examples were not retired until 1926. History adapted from Wikipedia
the model
This is the Wingnut Wings kit marked in the colours of No. 111 Sqn, RAF Duxford, 1924 from the excellent Pheon decal sheet.

Ryszard, I've often admired your work and this is no exception. The wood portion of the prop and the subtle shading are great additions to a beautiful model. Crisp and clean is not my choice however in your case it's easy to see the beauty in a factory fresh finish. Congratulations on a magnificent Model. Cheers, Lance

Stunning work! I recently acquired the Toko 1/72 Snipe that was missing its decals. You have just given me inspiration for a colourful scheme I could easily make up from spare decal stock.
