Build a traditionally constructed, rubber powered, free flight model of a 1918 Sopwith F1 Camel of No.13 Squadron RNAS (the No. 13 Squadron RNAS (latterly 213 Squadron RAF) provided cover for naval sea planes and shipping, before supporting the Belgian army towards the end of the war) using the traditional method of stick and tissue, that consists of a built up balsa wood skeleton (framework), covered with a tissue skin, using a plan that is printed at the exact scale of the model. Power is provided by rubber strip motor that is wound up before flight. In the spirit of the traditional kits, profiles have been simplified and adjusted from the original and a relatively large propeller used. These adjustments have been done with care and sensitivity so that the shape and spirit of the original aircraft is preserved as much as possible. Also in the spirit of the traditional kits, additional items required are things that can be found in the kitchen drawer or are easily available on the high street. KIT CONTENTS Four balsa sheets with precise laser cut parts and strip wood, PVA glue for building the wooden frames. 1 x 150mm diameter plastic propeller, 1 x pre-bent motor hook and shaft, 1 x small piece of thin acetate sheet for the upper wing window, 1 x small piece of thick acetate sheet for the screen, 3 x low friction plastic nose bushings - one for the propeller and two for the undercarriage wheels, piano wire for the main undercarriage and tail wheel legs, 1 x matchstick for the tail skid. 1 x motor peg (cocktail stick or toothpick), 1 x plastic drinking straw (approximately 5mm in diameter), Rubber motor strip, Tissue to cover the model, Parts reference sheet (W), full size summary plan sheet (X), scheme diagram sheet (Y) and scheme markings (Z) printed on lightweight paper
