This is my latest model. It is the old 1/48 scale Monogram
Sopwith Camel and was an enjoyable build.
I used a combination of stretched sprue and fine wire for
the rigging. The struts were made from plastic strut material and
installed after filling the troughs molded in the wing. The
cockpit is partially scratchbuilt. The guns barrels were drilled
out and a ring sight was added from a photo-etch set.
The markings are from Eagle Strike sheet 48081. No. 10 Squadron
RNAS, A flight.
I really enjoyed building this kit. It was my first WWI
subject, but it wont be my last.
