Sopwith Pup

The Sopwith Pup was a British single-seater biplane fighter aircraft built by the Sopwith Aviation Company. It entered service with the Royal Flying Corps and the Royal Naval Air Service in the autumn of 1916. With pleasant flying characteristics and good manoeuvrability, the aircraft proved very successful. The Pup was eventually outclassed by newer German fighters, but it was not completely replaced on the Western Front until the end of 1917. Remaining Pups were relegated to Home Defence and training units. The Pup's docile flying characteristics also made it ideal for use in aircraft carrier deck landing and takeoff experiments.

    @CaptnGav I know. It flew okay (not great) on the version of Simpleplanes it was released on, but as soon as the game was updated, it killed it, along with a few other planes I made. It is a sculpture at this point.

    No need. If I upvote something it means it is good, and I like it.
    It is not a "I-help-you-by-giving-you-15-points"
    It is "I like it" and "get more things like that here to reseive ore upvotes"
    So no need to thank me.

    Why doesn't it fly? It's good looking for sure... but functionality is a problem.

    @Gestour - Lol! I'm an amateur as well, and I share this account with my 13 year old son. Actually, now that he is 13 we can get a student license for Maya. This game has inspired me to learn more.

    I'm late to this plane, largely due to a recent surgery recovery, but I want to commend you on this amazing build. You really are a fantastic designer, and you give the community mods. Are you a graphic designer or professional artist in your day to day life?
