To honour the pilots who served with gallantry and distinction during the Great War of 1914 – 1918.
The museum’s Sopwith Camel is a work in progress. Initially, as proof of concept, a wooden mock-up fuselage was built.
Then on to the steel work…
Wooden formers and tinsmithing to get things looking the way they should
The M14 up front
Details, details… Some undercarriage fittings
Wheels with brakes
Some work on the tail feathers
Ribs, then wing assemblies
Test fitting bits in the office
Putting some of the bits together at one of our open houses
