terri werner hello there, this is (no real nice words to use) a crap model, perhaps the worse one I have brought, its oddly by Revell, and probably one of their very first types, its cast in soft 'red' plastic, and believe me, not all that at all. I've actually made quite a few aircraft, mostly all in 1-72

Sopwith camel WW1 003
this is my sopwith camel, I actually made 2 of these, and a few German, and a part build bomber somewhere in my stash, and before you ask, no I don't want to model in 1-35 or the dreaded 1-48, I like nice small stuff where you can get away with things like painting the whole face pink and not having to worry about painting eyes, eyes those eyes --- errr okay that will do for now, catch ya later.
