New Wingnut Wings 1/32 Scale Sopwith Camel Models

Information supplied by Richard Alexander

We are pleased to announce that our long awaited 1/32 scale Sopwith Camel has begun shipping to distributors and will be available from your preferred stockist as soon as their shipment arrives.

The iconic Sopwith Camel is probably the most famous of all First World War aircraft, if not by sight, then by name. The Sopwith F.1 Camel, initially powered by the 130hp Clerget engine, started arriving at front line RFC (Royal Flying Corps) & RNAS (Royal Naval Air Service) squadrons from the middle of 1917 and quickly helped wrest air superiority back from the German Albatros fighters. Nine different manufacturers built around 5500 Sopwith Camels which were powered by a variety of engines. The RNAS preferred the 150hp AR.1 (Admiralty Rotary 1), later renamed the BR.1 (Bentley Rotary 1) and the RFC preferred the 110hp Le Rhône 9J and, when they became available, the improved 140hp Clerget 9Bf while the USAS preferred the 160hp Gnome 9N Monosoupape engine.
