The 1916 Sopwith Pup was, in many ways, the quintessential biplane fighter, with its classic, simple lines. Its handling qualities apparently made it a joy to fly and it was very popular with pilots. Standard armament was one Vickers machine gun though some were additionally armed with eight Le Prieur rockets. The standard colour, as with most British aircraft of the period, was a dark khaki brown-green (the famous ‘Protective Covering No. 10’). I find that dark stone grey makes a believable substitute.
