    APSS Spowith One and a Half Strutter project

    I had the opportunity to visit the workshops of the APSS -Aviation Preservation Society of Scotland near East Fortune. This was the first time that I had seen their Strutter since they moved out of the Museum of Flight at East Fortune.

    Basically the whole aircraft is one hand-crafted labour of love and I look forward, as they certainly do, to the day when it will fly.
    I made an Adobe Spark presentation from the photos.

    Well done Wallace, a really nice piece, and well illustrated. That would be a great article for the Vintage Aircraft Club magazine, now edited by our very own Consul. I hope he see this.

    The Sopwith looks beautiful, and with luck they will not encounter some of the difficulties that some other Rotec operators have run into in recent times.

            Tim mentioned that he was still spraying it but it looks even better now he's got the job complete.

              Missed your article first time round, Wallace. It really is an excellent write-up on the progress of the Sopwith. It looks fantastic and from Robert's photo it looks very near completion. It's going to be a wonderful sight when it takes to the air!
