    Default First new props of 2016, it's snoopy and the Red Baron

    I just moved into my new hose and my dad happened to notice I perfect spot on my oak trees for some dog fighting planes. They aren't finished, the props will turn with motors and have snoopy and Red Baron cutouts in the planes

    Snoopy imagines his doghouse is a Sopwith Camel, which is what this plane is

    OK I'll give that to you,

    I could tell that your plane was representative of a Sopwith Camel and I knew that is Snoopy's plane, just had to kid you a little.

    But come on, just think what a flying doghouse would look like!

    Dang! I've always believed that it was a Sopwith Pup.

    You are right it is a Pup, the service men called the planes Sopwith Camels because of the raised up area for the guns looked like a camels back

    Actually, I am wrong. They are different aircraft; the Pup preceded the Camel https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sopwith_Camel

    And it's quite clear that in the original cartoon strip, Snoopy was specific about it being a Camel. It just seems like the opportunity for a great little joke was missed I wonder whether Charles Schultz even knew that a Sopwith Pup had existed.
