LEGO Unveils Amazing Sopwith Camel Model: Is the Red Baron Far Behind?
May 9th, 2012
When I was a kid I used to love planes and I built countless models of them. One of the neater ones was the Sopwith Camel. Check this out. It’s the newly revealed LEGO set number 10226, the Sopwith Camel, and it looks amazing.
This is an 883-piece replica of a fighter plane from the first World War and it just looks stunning in LEGO. It is designed for older LEGO builders as part of the Creator line. The control surfaces actually move, and are controlled by the model’s tiny joystick.
The parts don’t move using gears or motors, but closer to the way the actual Sopwiths were controlled – with string. How is that for accuracy? You have to love details like that. The LEGO Sopwith Camel will arrive in June for $99.99(USD).
