Sopwith Camel F1 – Hasegawa 1:8 (1st build)

I’ve been asked a couple of times if I know where people can get the assembly instructions for this model. They are available here:

This is a model that I wanted to build for years before I finally got hold of an example. It was one of the most enjoyable builds I’ve undertaken, though the model has some large errors in it if you build it as it was presented by Hasegawa. The blow by blow account of the build is covered in the blog section of this site.

It is one a series of 4 models they did known as the “Museum Series” as the finished model was deemed to be of museum display standard. The other models in the series  were the SE5a, Fokker Dr.1 and the Wright Flyer. All were 1:8 scale multimedia kits except the latter which was 1:16 scale.
