Sopwith Camel F.1 – Finals
The snub-nosed, pugnacious look of this aircraft is instantly recognisable as a Sopwith Camel.
I’ve previously posted Headline articles relating to significant sections of this project, a 1/16 model from Model Airways, because of the detail and complexity of these areas. The project is now complete.
The cabane and interplane struts are a combination of metal and timber. It may seem odd treating the timber interplane struts with woodgrain effects, but they had to match the cabane struts in detail and tone. The rigging is set up at this stage as well, ready for tensioning once the top plane is in position.
Here are photos of the completed model, in the round.
