Artesania Latina Sopwith Camel 1/32

HISTORY OF WORLD WAR I BIPLANE FIGHTER SOPWITH CAMEL

Take to the skies with the English warplane of the Royal Flying Corps used by the Triple Entente during the development of the First World War, among other war conflicts. The Sopwith Camel was an intimidating fighter plane for novice pilots, however, it was one of the most popular fighters of the so-called War of the Kaiser and the favorite mount of many of the Allied Forces.

The first order to the factory for this fighter required the use of the 130 hp Le Rhône engine, but later the contract awarded to the Sopwith requested that the Clerget 9B be installed as a motor.

Between July 4, 1917 and November 11, 1918, the Sopwith Camel shot down a total of 1,294 enemy aircraft. Later studies by British writer Chaz Bowyer reveal that the total incursions of the fighter Sopwith Camel actually caused around 2,800 victories , a figure much higher than that achieved by any other plane during the entire war. Only the German triplane Fokker Dr. I of the Red Baron overtook the Camel in maneuverability.
