A 1:16 Scale Wood & Metal Replica As Detailed As The Real Airplane
There has never been a scale airplane model as highly detailed as the Sopwith Camel by Model Airways. We've captured virtually every detail of the original to reproduce this legendary aircraft as a historically accurate 1:16 scale replica.
An Exceptional Kit, True To The Original!
The real Sopwith Camel had no plastic parts. Neither does our model. The kit replicates every part of the Sopwith in materials much like those used in the original airplane. Components are first class, starting with hundreds of laser-cut aircraft quality birch and basswood (much higher density than balsa) parts for ribs and fuselage. A perfectly scaled Clerget 9-B rotary engine- complete with cylinders, distributor and crankcase- is assembled from over 70 precision cast Britannia metal parts. More than 350 other accurately scaled Britannia metal, brass and rubber pieces, plus copper wire reproduce virtually every detail.
No Modeling Experience Needed!
Even if you've never built a model before, you can build the Sopwith Camel. Five sheets of plans and 44 pages of step-by-step instructions with clear drawings and photographs show you the way to an authentically detailed museum quality model.
