"Not The Best Kit But Ok For Practice"
imageArtCo (Bayonne, NJ)
I agree with the negative reviews preceding mine. The kit is average with fit problems and the decals are below standard. The stripes do not match any of the research photos I have found, nor does the artwork on the cover. It is a good kit to hone your skills as far as learning to fix problems with a sub-par model. If that is not your cup of tea, avoid this kit.

"Good enough for an 8yr old"
mrlarry4069
This kit was bought for my Grandsons first glue together model kit here are the Pro & Con of the model ---Pros: -Good value (very inexpensive) -parts were molded very well compared to the similar Revell kits with minimal cleanup. Cons: -only one decal set -Minimal interior detail -there is no paint scheme. Seriously, they tell you where the decals go and give you a black-and-white picture of the plane with NO paint colors in the instructions. Not too big of a deal, but annoying. After my grandson built the model I tore it apart and attempted to make it look some what like the box. We did a lot of internet surfing to find a color schemes and if they had camo patterns & cable stabilizing for the wings

"Wonderfull Kit that Fits Any Role"
Cheerilee (Ponyville)
The Sopwith Camel is the iconic airplane of the First World War. This kit does the prototype great justice. This was the first model airplane I have ever built, and I greatly enjoyed the experience. The kit's injection modeled parts have a nice crisp detail, and the kit is easy and simple enough to go together in a night. The kit is relatively small, which means one could easily mount it on a small base, or on a diorama. It also scales out nicely to go alongside HO/OO scale scenery and structures. Mine in-fact, became some dressing for a model railroad; Standing alongside an airfield. I also went the extra mile and did all the rigging and added an HO scale pilot figure into the cockpit. This is a great kit, and had solidified my opinion on Academy's model kits. If you're a beginner this is a great kit to start with, and if you've got some experience under your belt, a great kit to play with.
