  • Sopwith Baby Floatplane replica restoration advice +assistance please

    Greetings from Cheshire. I am assisting with restoring a Sopwith Baby Floatplane replica at a WW1 Site here. Any advice or information on the correct propeller and mechanics tools/ equipment for our diorama and display would be very much appreciated please? Thank you all.

    I've looked through a rather long list of British propellers and could only find two that are listed for use on the Sopwith Baby. The first is model AD500, but that was a four-blade propeller and the other is model LP690, both used with a 100 HP Gnome monosoupape engine. The latter has a diameter of 2650 with a pitch of 2100.

    I looked through all six of Bob Gardner's books on British propellers but could not find anything related to the Sopwith Baby.
