This wonderful silver model is a perfect scale replica of the Sopwith Camel flown by Captain Roy Brown, the famous Canadian flying ace credited with shooting down, among many others, Manfred von Richthofen, known as the Red Baron, in the First World War.

This beautiful silver model aeroplane was crafted entirely by hand to include the finest details. The fuselage and wings are hand raised from sheet silver, with cast and hand-modelled detail. Hand engraving finishes the work with the identical detailing found on Brown's original plane.

The Sopwith Camel was a British, First World War, single-seat biplane fighter aircraft that was introduced on The Western Front in 1917. It was developed by the Sopwith Aviation Company as a successor to the Sopwith Pup, and became one of the best known fighter aircraft of The Great War.
