Product Description
The Sopwith 1½ Strutter was named for its short central struts and single-bay wings. Among its many roles, the Strutter was repurposed as a nightfighter for home defense, with the pilot moved into the rear cockpit (normally the home of the observer) with single or twin Lewis guns on a foster mount within reach.  (Top-wing guns worked better on night fighters because the muzzle flash would not blind the pilot.)  The nightfighter was also called the "Sopwith Comic".

This product comes in two scales: 1:144 and 1:285/6mm/1:288.   The 1:285 product contains two aeroplanes joined by disposable links.  You can cut the links with wire cutters or fingernail clippers.  Due to printing limitations, the mounting of the observer's gun in simplified in the 1:285 product, and the propeller blades are replaced by removable translucent propeller disks.

This version depicts a Strutter Nightfighter, as used in most British aircraft.  A variety of Stutters are available:  the two-seater with a Scarff-type mounting, the two-seater with the Etévé/Nieuport mounting, the one-seat bomber with Vickers, the one-seat bomber with Lewis, and this night fighter for Home Defense.
