Sopwith Camel - Henry Botterell
Aviation Archive. Knights of the Air. This is Corgi's first Camel diecast and it was produced in 2008. The box has a Hornby logo. The model is very attractive, even cute, though comparing it with later Camel versions, you can see an obvious flaw in the top wing. The wing bends down (none of the other Camels bend like that), which causes the plastic panels on the bottom of the top wing to bow out in the middle. Other than that, the models is well made. The pilot is missing a painted mustach, though one was apparently molded on. Makes one wonder who chickened out, hummm?
