The Sopwith Camel was first flown by the Royal Naval Air Service's No. 4 Squadron in June 1917. A late addition to Britain's World War I arsenal, the Camel proved to be a formidable foe against Germany's Albatros. It was highly maneuverable and incredibly fast, so it was a perfect choice for nighttime air raids. Today, the Sopwith Camel remains one of WWI's most iconic aircraft. This structure model kit features new tooling, museum-quality details, all-plastic construction, silver metal-plated cowl parts, functional rudder and flap parts and realistic rubber tires.
