History in the Making
Microaces love of aviation history ensures that the aircraft we reproduce as kits look fantastic on static display as well as in the air.
The Microaces Sopwith Camel replicates one of the most iconic aircraft of the WWI era to a level that sets a new bar for micro scale RC. The livery of this kit is that of D8118, flown by Ace Pilot Major John Ingis Gilmour, the highest scoring Scotsman of WWI.
Included in this multi-media model is a vac-formed cowl, free spinning 3D printed fuel pump prop and rigging part PLUS a spinning dummy rotary engine kit. All these extras add an incredible level of mechanical and visual detail to this astounding model.
Devil in the Detail
There is also an additional Detail Pack available for this model.
The Pack contains 3D printed 50lb Cooper bombs plus ply and laser cut plastic parts that assemble to replicate the bomb rack, creating an extra-ordinary level of detail never seen in an RC kit of this scale before. When ordering, select the Kit with detail pack to include it in your order!
NOTE: The dummy motor requires an elongated prop shaft for your PKZ3624 motor/gearbox or use a 'rotary ready' Microaces Motor/Gearbox.
Got the Kit....now wear the T-shirt!
Local artist Wayne Savage has created a 'Vintage Comic Book' style illustration to mark the launch of the Microaces Sopwith Camel kit. We've printed this onto the back of a high quality garment with the new Microaces logo on the front so you can fly the aircraft AND wear the T-Shirt.
