    Three RAF Shapeways Sopwith triplanes - done in schemes for my RNAS squadron in the OTT campaign. The schemes are fictional for the tripe but are based on a Sopwith Camel schemes (Stackard 9 Naval squadron and the light blue 'Suds') and a Sopwith Pup training squadron scheme (serial C215).

    hello all,
    Objectives for this month:
    4 T&T objective markers (the ones in the box are a bit flat ;-) ).
    A farm building, (for the tripods to trip over ;-) ).
    Character sheets for pilots.
    A sheet for making battle notes for AAR.

    Version 2.1 of a spare RNAS HP 0/400, loosely based on a windsock datafile photo.

    Well done Chris. I especially like the forward gunner leading the charge

    Thanks, Craig. I think he's signalling to one of the pilots, at least that's what I hope Ares intended The HP would cut its engines then the forward observer would use hand signals for direction and when to drop the bombs.

    If they were using hand signals why cut the engines?

    I was trying to avoid mentioning that Chris. Sleeping Bulldogs and all that sort of thing!
    They do look great to me.

    Dom, it was to try and avoid detection by searchlights/AA at night, and it was still tough to hear with the wind whistling through one's ears and the bracing wires. The navigator would move to the forward cockpit through a small door and do the signals, there was a bomb sight on later models in the forward cockpit (on earlier models it was behind the pilot and the navigator had to lay down to use it, signalling with lights or by grabbing the legs of the pilot). After the bomb(s) were dropped the pilot fired up the engines and turned the lumbering beast towards home.

    If not, Chris will need to take it up with Daryl. At least it's not Ares wing spacing.
