If you like the Volkswagen T1 Camper Van 10220 and are also interested in vintage airplanes, you will love the Sopwith Camel 10226.
This model may look small from the box art and also with a piece count of below a thousand pieces. But the completed model is 15” (40cm) long with a wingspan of 19” (50cm).
Here’s a video by the LEGO designer.
It is very detailed with a rotating propeller and engine cylinders. Turn the propeller to see the engine cylinders rotate.
The hinged tail rudder, functioning wing ailerons and tail flaps can be controlled from the cockpit adding to the realism.
It also has some rare metallic silver pieces for the engine. The dark green bricks will also be sort after by people in their MOCs.
The Sopwith Camel is a historic British single-seat biplane and this set is a highly detailed replica.
