Handmade with silk canvas over a wooden frame, this model captures a piece of military history and celebrates the fighter plane that eventually brought down Germany's most feared pilot, the Red Baron. There are only seven original Sopwith Camels still in existence, on display at aviation museums in such diverse places as Little Rock, Arkansas, and Krakow, Poland.

Imported. 15'' wingspan. 10 1/4''L x 4 1/2''D.

By the final years of WWI, Britain's Royal Flying Corps included 5,500 of the famous single-seat fighter planes called the Sopwith Camel. First introduced to the RFC in 1917, this plane was outstanding in its maneuverability; its pilots were known as "knights of the air." By 1918 however, it was already becoming obsolete because of its relatively slow speed and inability to handle well at higher altitudes.

    Comments about British Sopwith Camel Model Plane:

    As a former airplane and rocket model builder as well as a former RC buff, I can confidently say this is a wonderful model. The balsa frame as well as the application of the silk span and paint job is first rate. The detail with the cockpit, the struts and support cables is all first class and all that's missing is the .049 engine. But, it's not that kind of model. If you have an aircraft buff in your life, buy this model with confidence.

    World War I flying ace Eddie Rickenbacker was the most celebrated aviator of his time. Our 1/24-scale model of Rickenbacker’s SPAD S.XIII, in which he flew 20 of his confirmed 26 victories, is handcrafted of Philippine hardwood and hand-painted with the patriotic markings of the 94th Aero Squadron. As the first American squadron to enter World War I, the 94th Fighter Squadron chose as their insignia a ring with Uncle Sam’s red, white, and blue hat to symbolize their willingness to “throw their hat in the ring” and enter the fighting in France.

    No one thought that Elizabeth would live to become Queen of England. Her father, Henry VIII, beheaded her mother, Anne Boleyn, for treason in 1536. He then disowned his daughter, declaring her illegitimate. But in 1544, Parliament reestablished her in the line of succession after her half brother and her half sister. Endowed with immense personal courage and a keen awareness of her responsibility as a ruler, Elizabeth commanded throughout her reign the unwavering respect and allegiance of her subjects.
