An occasional aeroplane gets pushed into the production line as a few of these very old kits arrive in-house. Off the desk, a Revell Sopwith Triplane from a 1975 kit gets added into the fleet. This kit is from Revell's Collector's Choice series and includes parts to build three variations of the triplane.
Although having a short, operational life, the triplane with "Venetian blind" wings had an impressive rate of climb and maneuverability. In April 1917, Richtofen claimed the Sopwith Triplane to be the best allied aircraft to date.
A fun little kit to build and an interesting model to add to the Canvas Eagles' skies.
