On February 9, 1916, Herbert Smith's small 80 hp single seat "Fighting Scout" Passed its acceptance tests and was cleared for production by the Sopwith Aviation Co. LTD. The Sopwith Pup sow combat on every major front of World War I and perfomed almost every duty asked of a combat aircraft. Along with the Pup's combat success, it was also a pioneering aircraft of Naval shipboard aviation. The Pup was one of the first aircraft to successfully take off and land on a ship at sea, one of the first aircraft to experiment with "arresting gear" for shipboard landings, and also one of the first aircraft to actually engage in aerial combat after being launched from a ship at sea. However, you should realize the real key to the Pup's success was its outstanding flight characteristics.

EXPERIENCED BUILDERS ONLY.
Unlike the later BUSA kits the instructions don''t have pictures and are just text. So this one is more for experienced builders.
Having said that, there there are several build threads out there (just google ''building Balsa usa 1/3 scale pup'') and you will get pictures and advice how others did it.

The main reward is flying. With a toni clarke reduction gear my pup swung a 32" prop on a Zenoah 38cc petrol engine. it flies at a really scale speed, sounds great, and there is plenty of power in reserve. search on Youtube you will find videos.

This is a big impressive WW1 model that flies beautifully.
YES, i would recommend this product.
