Wingnut Wings dip a toe into the colourful Golden Age of 1920s aviation with their superb new postwar Sopwith Snipe Late boxing.

may be tempted for this yes, a late silver and checkerboard finish amongst all my lozenge covered builds. Nice to the point review Rowan thank you.

Cheers Mikael and Keith

It is a gorgeous kit! I must admit I was instantly drawn to the silver-doped RAF schemes too... but then I saw the captured Russian one...! Ohh - decisions, decisions!

All the best

Perhaps safest route would be to get another one? Oh its a slippery slope

Hi Mikael

Now that's just being wicked! But, then there are civil Snipes, and 2-seaters... I'm doomed!

All the best

Solid review on the late production version Snipe. I wonder why no one ever came up with the aftermarket resin pieces & decals to do a post war Bristol?

Nice review Rowan, but I hate you and WNW because now I want one.

Noooo Stephen don't suggest that my wallets already shaking with fear with out a post war 'Biff' as well.

Sorry Luciano

But it seems only fair - seeing how you've reminded me in the "Postman" thread how much I want a certain Hawker Hart!

So, how do we start a petition to see Wingnut Wings tackle some Golden Age subjects? How about a Bulldog or Fury for starters?

All the best
