Flown by Major John Ingis Gilmour 1918
History in the Making
Microaces love of aviation history ensures that the aircraft we reproduce as kits look fantastic on static display as well as in the air.
The Microaces Sopwith Camel replicates one of the most iconic aircraft of the WWI era to a level that sets a new bar for micro scale RC. The livery of this kit is that of D8118, flown by Ace Pilot Major John Ingis Gilmour, the highest scoring Scotsman of WWI.
