Martinsyde S.1, Inverted, with Louis Strange

3D printed in heather gray nylon plastic with a matte finish and slight grainy feel.
Product Description
This miniature recounts the famous incident of 10 May, 1915, when pilot Louis Strange, while trying to change a jammed Lewis machine gun drum, allowed his plane to slip into an inverted spin with Louis hanging on by the very ammo drum he had been frantically trying to free moments later. Eventually he managed to kick his way back into the cockpit and righted the plane just before it crashed into a forest.

The Martinsyde Scout (Type S.1) was never built in large numbers, but it is important because it was one of the first armed tractors, with a Lewis gun fixed to the top wing firing forward and slightly upward to avoid the propeller. Starting in late 1914, S.1's were doled out in ones and twos to R.F.C. squadrons in France and they were flown by air combat pioneers like Louis Strange. They served both in France and the Middle East, finally being retired in the latter half of 1915.

The miniature comes with a peg in the style of Wings of War/Wings of Glory miniatures.
