The Sopwith F.1 Camel
VK Models Kits

Proctor Enterprises Sopwith F.1 Camel

(Click on the images to enlarge.)

Many boyhood dreams have had, at their center, a Sopwith Camel.  Perhaps one of those dreams is yours.  It is impossible to explain what this flying machine has that others do not.

The Sopwith Camel evoked a love/hate relationship with the men who flew them.  It is said that she killed as many of her own as her enemies.  But, in the hands of a capable pilot, she could be played as a virtuoso plays a Stradivarius.

The nickname "Camel" came from the hump fairing that enclosed the twin Vickers guns, the first British type to be so equipped.

The Camel will be best remembered, however, for its maneuverability.  Only the Fokker Triplane was its equal.  But the 320 Triplanes that were built would never challenge the 5,490 Camels that were produced from 1917 to the Armistice.

We all know that those boyhood dreams last forever.  We call upon them from time to time when we need an escape.  VK has made the escape, in part, possible.  We are told that we can't live in the past, but we say, "Why not?"
