Sopwith 1 1/2 Strutter

Aeromodeller Plans Service's Sopwith 1 1/2 Strutter

The Sopwith 1½ Strutter was a British single or two-seat multi-role biplane aircraft of the First World War, significant as the first British two-seat tractor fighter, and the first British aircraft with a synchronised machine gun. It was given the name "1½ Strutter" because of the long and short cabane struts that supported the top wing. The model presented here, designed by B. Sichi and published in Aeromodeller magazine, has interesting design objectives. The model is fairly large with a 48" wingspan, is designed for 5 to 10 cc (.35 to .60 CID) engines, and the both wings' symmetrical airfoils are a hint that this scale biplane is intended for serious control line aerobatics enthusiasts.

About the Plans Printing Service.

About the plan source:

You should verify if the source file has the quality for the type of construction you intend to do, we will print the file without any kind of enhancement or scaling. To know if the file is good please download it and open it on a pdf viewer like Adobe pdf viewer and set the view level or zoom level to 100% or 1:1 or full scale or actual size, depending on which version or pdf viewer you are using. Also, using the measuring tool make sure all the parts fit together and have the correct size.

Plans Scaling:

We can scale the Sopwith 1 1/2 Strutter plan for you. But please keep in mind that if this plan is not vector, if you enlarge it too much the quality will be degraded.
