WW1 Sopwith camel

by: David Niescior [ AIRWARRIOR ]

Curse you red baron! Now for something a little different. I recieved this kit as a Christmas present and am still building it due too an unfortunate accident involving a brother, a table and a rubber ball. This is a nice and crisply detailed aeroplane that is definately a fun build.

 

The Kit
This kit comes in 3 sprues-A, B, and C (C holds the wings). The kit comes with great detail in the rotary engine and in the kit overall. There are some fit problems with the spars as some of them do not reach where they are supposed to. A little bit of detailing such as a little scratching on the guns, drilling the barrels out and maybe some P/E (if there is any out there) for the rotary engine would make this a fine kit.

 

Instructions
Very clear and easy to read. Has a nice history of the plane (but forgetting its troubles with rookie pilots). There is not much too read as the pictures show anything you would need to know such as where to put a piece. Not looking like a copy of a master print, it looksvery clear with no ink smudges or hard to read super fine tiny little print that I've come across in some models.

Hmmm, so you wanna know about me? Well, for starters I am 16 years old, and have been modeling since I was about 7 or 8. When my parents found they were having me, they decided to give up smoking, and to keep them from having the option of buying cigarrettes, they would buy as many kits as they coul...
