Sopwith Camel F.1
A new project, and unusually for me these days – an aircraft, in this case a 1:16 Sopwith Camel from Model Airways.
The model is wood and cast metal, with other sections of brass as well. As can be seen from the large plans it’s a sizeable project, and because of the size and relative complexity I thought I’d post occasional brief updates to avoid overly long WiP posts elsewhere.
The all-metal Clerget engine weighs 80g! The only addition I’ve made is 0.080 steel wire for the ignition wiring between the spark plugs and ignition ring. Paints used are Alclad II and AK Interactive Extreme Metals range.
