3451 Sopwith Camel

Bought Summer 2001.

Year 2001, 577 pieces

This is by far my best looking LEGO set and a nice statue!

Released under the "Statue" theme at Shop at Home.

A truly nice model.

Technic parts in the landing gear.

Brown and dark gray pieces along with red, tan and some blue.

One of few models that I've used stickers on, but this one is more for display then parts.

The motor do spin with the propeller.

The trick behind getting thr strings tight is to turn the 1 x 1 round plate that holds them, thus putting tension to the string.

Box is gray in print due to the fact it's not intended for shelf display at shops.

How it looked after my NLSO accidently bumped into it and it fell to the floor.

Great pieces

Well worth getting just for the beaty of the whole thing, but:
Large plates
Some specialized pieces


Building instruction on Brickshelf (N/A)
Inventory on Peeron
Set reference on Lugnet
Jim Hughes Technica (N/A)
