1/32 Sopwith Triplane

Posted by Paul On October - 19 - 2019


This is a 1/32 model of the Sopwith Triplane flown by Raymond Collishaw in WW1.  It is made by Wingnut Wings and is a fantastic kit.  A little bit about Raymond Collishaw…

Wikipdedia -Raymond P. Collishaw, CB, DSO & Bar, OBE, DSC, DFC (22 November 1893 – 28 September 1976) was a distinguished Canadian fighter pilot, squadron leader, and commanding officer who served in the Royal Naval Air Service (RNAS) and later the Royal Air Force. He was the highest scoring RNAS flying ace and the second highest scoring Canadian pilot of the First World War. He was noted as a great leader in the air, leading many of his own formations into battle. As a member of the RAF during the Second World War, he commanded No. 204 Group (which later became the Desert Air Force) in North Africa.
