Sopwith Pup, highest-quality wooden kit from Gruener-CNC The classic from 1916 in ultramodern manufacturing!

 
The original:
The Sopwith Pup had been a British single-seater biplane, which was used as a fighter in the First World War. The Pup was built from the Sopwith Aviation Company and originated from the personal plane of the Sopwith chief pilot.

The Sopwith Pup was a very agile fighter, very pleasant and easy to fly.  Due to the big wings it had a good rate of climb and maneuverability, especially in high altitudes. According to James McCudden, it was flying two circles, while at the same time Albatros was flying only one - although the Sopwith Pup had a weak drive compared to the Albatros D.III. Manfred von Richthofen praised the agility of the Sopwith Pup, but criticized the lack of nosedive abilities. Altogether 1770 Sopwith Pups were built.


The model:
After our 1:10 semiscale-models Piperle and Tiger Moth being successful and world-famous for years now, it was time for Ralf Gruener (Gruener-CNC) to set a new "benchmark" with the Sopwith Pup concerning manufacturing quality, fit accuracy, construction manual and construction plan. Be amazed by our new Sopewith-kit. All wooden parts are precisely cut, BYO-wheels, a detailed, illustrated multicolored manual with rudder deflection, multicolored construction plan, parts list, laser-numbered parts - whatever we wanted: all of it had been realized by Gruener in the construction of the Sopwith Pup. And "the icing on the cake" is the optional dummy of 9-cylinder radial engine made of 225 (!) lasercut single parts. Do we love details? YES, we do!
 
Important: the construction of this model is not completed "within a couple of evenings"! Above all, this model is for all those, who enjoy building and creating on their own and who are not satisfied with building and creating Climaxx or the Big Easy. "You have already finished with it within 3 evenings" (original quote of a customer).

Super Bausatz, 27.07.2016
Author:
Vorweg: Dokumentation 1A Material 1A Dieser Bausatz ist das Beste was ich bis jetzt gesehen hab. Sauer geschnittene Teile die ohne nachbearbeitung passen. Der Bausatz ist zwar nicht unbedingt für Anfänger, ist aber das obere Ende der Messlatte. Man kann nur hoffen das da noch mehr Modelle kommen.

Ein Traum!, 20.05.2017
Author:
Die Pup war mein erstes Balsa Modell nach einigen Schaumwaffeln und sie hat mich direkt überzeugt. Der Bau ist wie angegeben zwar Zeitaufwendig, aber dank der guten Anleitung und der perfekt passenden Teile ist es auch für einen Neuling kein Problem und macht Spaß.
Die Flugeigenschaften sind ebenfalls grandios, dank des geringen Gewichtes kann sie sehr langsam fliegen und mit dem Vorgeschlagenem Antrieb(welcher sehr leise ist) und einem 1300mah Akku kommt man bei etwas weniger als Halbgas auf bis zu 30min Flugzeit! Wenn man "normal" fliegt kann man mit ~15min rechnen. Es sind aber auch genügend Leistungsreserven vorhanden um sie aus allen Situationen zu retten oder auch mal etwas sportlicher zu Fliegen. Zwei harte Abstürze, bei denen meine Schaumwaffeln vermutlich gebrochen wären, hat sie ohne ernste Schäden überstanden.
Eine Luftschraube aus Holz würde ich jedem empfehlen, sie gibt der Pup optisch den letzten Schliff.
Sie ist definitv das beste Modelll das ich jemals hatte und ich kann sie nur jedem empfehlen.

Super, 02.07.2014

50 Jahre Modellbauerfahrung, aber so ein Bausatz kam mir noch nicht unter. Wenn ich nach einem stressreichen Tag an das Bauen meiner "PUP" gehe, zaubert es immer ein Lächeln auf mein Gesicht. Der Bausatz ist absolut nichts für Grobmotoriker.
