Sopwith Camel - W. G. Barker

Aviation Archive. Knights of the Air. This is another lovely, heavy-metal model, one that uses less plastic than the more recent Corgi offerings. Other than a scuff on the right side of the cowling and a few lose wires in the rigging, the model is exceptionally well done, and is very collectable.

Looking at both models as airplanes, you can see why WWI pilots thought of their mounts as "kites".

The Camel's build quality is superior to Hobby Master's Spitfire, with no blows in the seams, good fitting tires, no chips in the paint, and no glue overflows.
