Revell Sopwith F.1 Camel 1/72 (one of the first aircraft in RAF)

From Author: This article should be posted in 100 Years of The Royal Air Force Group Build, but due to some error, I am posting it in general iModeler page. I made the kit in 2017 (the kit comes from 2009). The most difficult part was: rigging ([...]

Sopwith F.1 Camel, Wingnut Wings, 1/32

Finished another Wingnut kit, actually started building it about a year and a half ago, but due to some mishaps relating to me destroying decals it sat on the shelf of doom during a year. But I couldn't leave a kit like this there so the last mo[...]

Revell 1/28 Sopwith Camel “Donner Wetter!”

First post here. This is the classic 1/28 scale Revell Sopwith F.1 Camel from 1959. I mainly build 1/72, but was inspired to build this kit that's been sitting in my stash by a desire to build one of the Wingnut Wings Camels that came out rece[...]

Sopwith camel Le Rhone

This is one of these jobs that is twisted from the beginning and everything goes wrong, I break the compressor, the airbrush came at the end of his days while cleaning the airbrush needle broke. The varnish was as if it had something that repel[...]

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 a[...]

Sopwith Camel F.1 – Upside Down and Back to Front: Undercarriage and Lower Plane

This is the final instalment of the 1:16 Sopwith Camel F1 build sequence. The remaining work is with the main and cabane struts, upper plane and rigging, so the next time I post (all being well) it will be to show the completed project. If you[...]

1:16 Sopwith Camel F.1 – Fuselage

Arguably the most difficult and complex part of the build to date, the fuselage is now complete, with the exception of the cockpit coaming, which is added at a later stage. As with the wings, the structure was built up directly over the plan[...]

Sopwith Camel – More or Less

I've completed the empennage and lower wing of this 1:16 model. If I'd taken the photos a week ago you would have seen a real dog's dinner, but somehow it all came right. I'd mentioned previously that I probably wouldn't include images of the [...]

Sopwith Camel F.1 – Working with Wood

I hadn't thought I'd be posting any updates so soon, but the airscrew came together rather quickly so I decided to add a few images. The details in the book/plans aren't a 1:1 version so I had to find old Air Ministry specifications for the SC f[...]

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 pro[...]
