Chad Willie of Corning, Iowa, USA, has built several examples of Sopwith Triplane replicas working from original drawings and dimensions, but incorporating some modern construction techniques including steel tube fuselage, a modern engine, and simplified wing construction.

The Vintage Aviator Ltd fitted a Russian M-14P direct drive 9 cylinder 220 hp radial and one of its own replica Vickers machine guns. The top speed is about 115 mph and it lands at a comfortable 40 mph.
