Though difficult to handle, the Sopwith Camel — Britain's single-seat biplane fighter first introduced on the Western Front in 1917 — had unmatched maneuverability for an experienced aviator. Among the many skilled pilots to fly a Sopwith Camel was Major William George Barker, Canada's most decorated serviceman ever. He finished the Great War with 50 aerial victories.
A limited edition replica of Barker's Camel F1 as it appeared in Italy in September of 1918, this Corgi, 1/48 scale, die cast model features an open-style cockpit, a pilot figure, a rotating propeller, a detailed undercarriage, wing bracing, authentic No. 139 Squadron markings, and a display stand. Measures approximately 3¼" long with a 4¾" wingspan.
