No Parachute: A Classic Account of War in the Air in WWI
This account of the Great War puts you right in the action—from one of the fighter pilots of the Royal Flying Corps. From the young airmen who took their frail machines high above the trenches of World War I and fought their foes in single combat, there emerged a renowned company of brilliant aces—among them Ball, Bishop, McCudden, Collishaw, and Mannock—whose legendary feats have echoed down half a century. But behind the elite pilots in the Royal Flying Corps, there were many hundreds of airmen who flew their hazardous daily sorties in outdated planes without ever achieving fame. Here is the story of one of these unknown flyers—a story based on letters written in the day, telling of a young pilot’s progress from fledgling to seasoned fighter. His descriptions of air fighting, sometimes against the Richthofen Circus, of breathless dogfights between Sopwith Pup and Albatros, are among the most vivid and immediate to come out of World War I. Arthur Gould Lee, who rose to the rank of air vice-marshal and also authored the classic Open Cockpit, brilliantly conveys the immediacy of air war, the thrills and the terror, in this honest and timeless account.

Sopwith Camel F.1 1/48 Scale WWI Fighter Biplane Model by NewRay
This posting is for one Sopwith Camel F.1 biplane Model kit from NewRay. This collection is made in the 1/48 scale which translates to approximate sizes, depending on model, of 7 inches in length with a wingspan of about 9 inches. Like other NewRay building kit, they are not your typical building kit where one needs to cut pieces out of runners/trees and glue them together, but instead they come as disassembled toys where one needs to attach the engines to the front of the fuselage and then the wings to the fuselage and connecting rods. All the screws, connecting rods and little screw driver are included in the box. No gluing or painting is needed as they are snap fit models. Markings and different color trims are present in some models and accurately done. This collection in particular is very nice looking because of the bright colors. From the photos (and more in person) one can appreciate that the paint is thik and the finish is glossy. The Sopwith Camel F.1 is the only model that comes in its "natural" color, meaning the plastic is made in the model's color. The other models are coated with colored paint which is why they look so good. One has to handle the models in order to confirm that they are indeed made of plastic and not metal. However, this nice finish and coloring co...

Academy SPAD XIII WWI Fighter Airplane Model Building Kit
124461:72 United Kingdom Spad XIIIThe French-built SPAD XIII was one of the most famous fighters of World War I. While most of the fighters in use during the War used a rotating radial engine(Rotary), the SPAD was one of the first to use the more powerful and efficient liquid-cooled inline type which later became the standard power unit for fighter aircraft for many years.So effective was the SPAD that several Allied countries used it during the War, including the United States, who had no combat airplanes of its own design in the War. Armed with one or two Vickers 7.65 mm machine guns firing through the propeller arc, the SPAD was a formidable foe. Some versions of the plane carried a devastating 37mm Hotchkiss cannon mounted in the nose and firing through the propeller hub. Other SPADs carried strut-mounted Le Prieur rockets.This model of the SPAD XIII has markings used by one of the United States fighter groups based in France.

WWI Classic plain model Sopwith Camel F.1, easy kit
The Sopwith Camel was a British First World War single-seat biplane fighter aircraft introduced on the Western Front in 1917. It had been developed by the Sopwith Aviation Company as a successor to the earlier Sopwith Pup and would become one of the most iconic fighter aircraft of the First World War. The Camel was powered by a single rotary engine and was armed with twin synchronized machine guns. Though proving difficult to handle, it provided for a high level of manoeuvrability to an experienced pilot, an attribute which was highly valued in the type's principal use as a fighter aircraft. In total, Camel pilots have been credited with the shooting down of 1,294 enemy aircraft, more than any other Allied fighter of the conflict. Towards the end of the Great War, the type had also seen use as a ground-attack aircraft, partially due to it having become increasingly outclassed as the capabilities of fighter aircraft on both sides was rapidly advancing at that time. The main variant of the Camel was designated as the F.1; several dedicated variants were built for a variety of roles, including the 2F.1 Ship's Camel, which was used for operating from the flight decks of aircraft carriers, the Comic night fighter variant, and the T.F.1, a dedicated 'trench fighter' that had been armou...
