Marvel at the incredible design of old fighter planes with the Authentic Models Transparent Sopwith Camel Airplane. The lightweight wooden frame is covered by transparent fabric so you can see and scrutinize the detailed construction inside. Responsible for more aerial victories than any other Allied airplane during the war, this single seat biplane was also credited with almost 400 deaths from non-combat related causes due to its small 28 feet wingspan. Called the "camel" because of the humped fairing over the twin machine guns, pilots had to master the tricks of flying this difficult airplane in order to harness its agility and accuracy. One of the most famous planes used in WWI, the camel was an incredible example of innovative craftsmanship that you can enjoy in this authentic replica. Some minor assembly is required.
