I'm proud to present you my latest creation : the Sopwith Camel F.1
The Sopwith Camel was a British fighter aircraft of the First World War. He was one of the handiest of all time had, although difficult to control.
The Gnome rotary engine was a 9-cylinder 150 hp (110 kW). He was armed with two Vickers 0.303 (7.62 mm) mounted in front of the cabin, synchronized through the propeller and covered by a fairing, giving a bump which earned the aircraft the nickname camel. He was able to reach the speed of 185 km / h.
Between July 4, 1917 (date of entry into the conflict) and 11 November 1918 (date of the armistice), Sopwiths shot down 1294 enemy aircraft.
My first plane, I tried to make it closer to the minifigures scale, although it's still a little big I grant you.
I hope you will like it :)
very nice for a first! the only thing that looks a bit iffy are those light bley 1x1 cheese plates behind the engine. I like the warping on the wings, the radial engine could use a bit more detail. great model, this still makes a 5/5!
Fantastic design! I love it! One advice; when your pictures are done loading, at the bottom of the window is different sizes for pictures. Click the large. That way the pictures are bigger and easier to see.
