N5486 is one of the only two authentic Sopwith Triplanes remaining in existence. It was supplied to the Russian Government for evaluation in May 1917. In Russia, the aircraft was fitted with skis and used operationally until captured by the Bolshevists. The aircraft then served in the Red Air Force, probably as a trainer, and was rebuilt many times. Today, N5486 is preserved at the Central Air Force Museum, Monino, Russia.

This kit is a reworking of a model originally designed by the anonymous designer "Bug forever" and published as a free download at the now defunct model.icegroup.ru site. It is republished here as a free download. Part outlines and instructional sketches mostly stem from the original, although this version includes major corrections, changes & additions. Colouring, markings, textures, part numbers, and text have been completely reworked for greater scale fidelity and clarity.

For a good propeller to this model, please consider the "Simplified laminated prop", available as a free download here. Print the prop at 50 percent for 1/32 scale.
