Back

The cockpit



The rudder moving





Wing ailerons up

Wing ailerons down

Tail flaps up

Tail flaps down

After I built it, I noticed that there are lots of extra pieces (the orange one is a brick separator)the extra pieces are mostly little pieces, but you also get 2 large pieces and 1 small piece of string.



Also,If you build it how the manual says, the tail flaps do not go down much.

you can fix it by attaching the string on the tail flaps a little closer(like a review said), but then they will stay in the down position when you let go of the joystick.

How the tail flaps work


I really like this set, it was fun to build and it has lots of neat pieces, like the string and silver pieces. The stickers weren't hard to put on, and the bricks look like they're printed with that design when you put the stickers on. The tail flaps and wing ailerons work good and use a very interesting system, but it doesn't work until the plane is almost done. The cockpit and has a nice seat. This Sopwith Camel is a very good and detailed set.

If you have any questions about this set, ask me and I'll answer your question

Quoting Kermunklin the Giant Evil House Head Good review- lots of pictures. I wish LEGO would put half as many pics of their stuff in the LEGO online thing as you did here. I won't be buying this thing as it's not minifig scale, but certainly I'll be checking out your reviews.
Thanks! I wish Lego would put more pictures of their products, too. I'll be making more reviews soon
