Model Airways Sopwith Camel WW1 Plane 1:16 Scale

Model Airways Sopwith Camel WW1 Plane 1:16 Scale

Sopwith Camel F.1 Airplane Model Kit by Model Airways, WWI British Fighter

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.

Wingspan 21" • Fuselage Length 14-1/16" • Scale 1:16 (3/4" = 1' 0")

Sopwith Camel F.1 Airplane Model Kit by Model Airways, WWI British Fighter

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.

Brief History
As a successor to the Pup, the Sopwith Camel entered Royal Navy squadron service in July of 1917. It was designed to help the British gain control of the skies over the trenches of WWI. The Sopwith Camel accounted for 1,294 victories, more than any other Allied aircraft type.

The Sopwith Camel was the first British fighter to mount twin synchronized .303” Vickers machine guns in front of the cockpit. A fairing surrounding the gun installation created a hump, giving the Camel its name.

The Sopwith Camel F.1 had a wingspan of 28 ft., was 18 ft. 9 in. in length, and was powered by a 130hp Clerget 9-cylinder rotary engine, producing a maximum speed of 101-113 mph. Fluid capacity of 26 gallons allowed 2.5 hours of flying time. Fiery and temperamental, the Camel had a wicked torque and was difficult to fly. In fact, more men lost their lives learning to fly it than using it in combat. But in the hands of an experienced pilot, the Camel was a deadly opponent in a dog-fight. Its greatest glory came on April 21, 1918 when it shot down Germany’s famous Red Baron.
