Wonderfull Kit that Fits Any Role
By Cheerilee October 19, 2012
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 kitís 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 Academyís model kits. If youíre a beginner this is a great kit to start with, and if youíve got some experience under your belt, a great kit to play with.

The WW1 big unstable dogfighter... But a killer!
By jclemente1980 July 25, 2015
This was the one that was able to face the fokker triplane. It was unstable, not easy to fly, but on the right hands it was deadly. Got the academy kit long ago, and the only difficult thing is to install the upper wings without braking the supports... But... that is the main dificculty of any biplane... Nevertheless, a small, accurate and economic weekend build. If you're starting and want a bigger challenge, or start on biplanes, this is where you can start.

Great quick build
By Mad Modler September 27, 2013
This kit from Hobbylinc was a gift and being a beginner, I found it fun and detailed enough to give me the practice I need before moving on to more complicated kits.
