Guillows 18" span Sopwith Camel

This is my build of one of the long discontinued Guillows WW series of 18" span WWI models. The laser cut short kit is from Aero-werks, http://dpcmodels.homestead.com/SRKS.htm
I highly recommend Dave's kits. You get the laser cut parts and a CD that contains all kinds of useful info including the plans and decals files.

I actually started this one a while ago but stalled due to repairs/upgrades to models flown (and crashed ) regularly, and a build of a micro Ugly Stick.

The plan was to utilize a removable equipment tray that could be transferred from model to model. This proved to be problematic and the idea was abandoned. The tray still slides out for equipment access and it might be incorporated into another model later. For now it is dedicated to the Camel due to the cowl shape.
