$ 22.99

1:63 Scale  Diecast Metal – Sopwith F.I (F.1) Camel Biplane – Length: 3.5"  Wingspan: 5.25”

 

This Camel is made of metal. It is certainly not a toy and will not survive been played with or a fall.

 

Although it is a small scale, the details are very impressive. The propeller is free to rotate and very smooth. If one blows onto the front of the plane, the propeller starts spinning. The wings and struts are made of metal. Moreover, the paint scheme and coloring is really well done. The primary red color is done in a glossy finish and covers the entire model.

 

A stand where the model can be attached for display is included and the model's info (type of airplane and scale).

 

Please notice the scale, at 1/63 scale this model is quite small measuring about 4 inches long and 4.5 inches wide of wingspan. Also that because this model is mostly metal, that it is quite dense and will not survive if dropped and if handled carelessly. This is definitely not a toy, although it is sized as one. The box is labeled as not recommended for children under 14.

 

The maker of the model, Model Power, really did a good job with the model, the panel lines and details are very clear and crisp.

 

The Sopwith Camel was a British First World War single-seat biplane fighter aircraft introduced on the Western Front in 1917. It was developed by the Sopwith Aviation Company as a successor to the earlier Sopwith Pup and became one of the most iconic fighter aircraft of the First World War.
