    SOPWITH PUP.

    This is an easy one for a beginner to have a go at.



    Clean up the castings.
    Glue the four outer wing struts to the lower wing. Use the upper wing as a template to align them.
    When dry assemble the cabine struts in the same manner.



    Once these are dry, place the top wing on and glue.



    If you wish drill and pin prop in place. Do not add glue yet.



    Remove prop, turn plane over and assemble undercart.



    Check alignment and glue.
    Prime plane and prop with white primer.



    Paint plane and allow to dry fully.

    Glue prop in place.
    Gloss varnish.
    Brush micro set onto parts where decals will be placed.
    Put on decals and allow to dry.



    Brush over with Micro Sol to set in decals, and allow to dry over night.
    Varnish to taste.


    My thanks to Gunners for supplying the Pup decals.
