1/144 Scale

The Sopwith Strutter was an innovative multi-role airplane, designed to answer the request of the British Admiralty for a two-seat bomber for the Western Front. Its nickname comes from the odd shape of the inboard struts, which attached to the fuselage rather than to the lower wing. It was the first British airplane to use a synchronized machine-gun for the pilot - able to fire through the rotating propeller - and the first two-seater with a "puller" engine. It served with both British air services and was also widely used by French aviation. The Sopwith Strutter Comic was derived from the two-seater Sopwith Strutter. The Comic was modified to become a single-seat fighter, used by British Home Defense to defend the British Isles from German bombing raids.

Serving in the French Air Service during World War I, Dieudonne Costes scored eight victories in the Balkans, becoming a fighter ace.

Designed to be used with the popular air combat game system created by Andrea Angiolino and Pier Giorgio Paglia, each WW1 Wings of Glory Airplane Pack is a ready-to-play model, painted and assembled, 100% compatible with any other WW1 Wings of Glory game product. In each pack you will find all you need to play with the airplane: a special base with gaming stats, a variable altitude flying stand, and a specific deck of maneuver cards.

Contents:

This is not a stand-alone game. A copy of Wings of Glory - WWI: Rules And Accessories Pack or a WWI Duel Pack is required to play.
