If you have been following our exclusive MAN Build-Along Series on my 1/4-scale Sopwith Camel project, then you know it flies great, but I did manage to damage the top wing on a typical nosed-over WW1 landing.

Jul 22, 2015 No Comments by

While flying the Sopwith Camel featured in our Build-Along series, I made a bad piloting decision. While at the Warbirds over Delaware event, I made a few successful flights in between taking photos and covering the event for MAN. Anyway, I came in for a landing and allowed the Camel to drift off the runway [...]

How To Repair a Fiberglass Engine Cowl

Jul 02, 2015 13 Comments by

The general method of attachment to the fuselage is the use of through-the-cowl screws making assembly quick and simple. After time however, [...]

Sopwith Camel Update — Build-Along Part 31

Jun 29, 2015 No Comments by

So, after an exciting, yet informative test flight, I found that we had a very nose-heavy condition, even though from the plans, I had the model balanced at the 25% MAC position. So much for the theory. With the Camel back safe and sound in the workshop, I have since moved the CG back to the [...]

Well after a long and enjoyable build-along series, I finally got the Sopwith Camel test flown at the recent 40th Annual Father’s Day Fun Fly in Kingston, Ontario, Canada.
