Sopwith Camel and Legos

While I have not played with Legos in years, Mark shared this little gem with me. A gamer and Lego expert I know he was taunting me. For the time being I will stay with Shapeways and Wings of Glory.

From the Lego website,

“Relive a classic era of aviation history with the Sopwith Camel biplane!

Recreate your very own piece of aviation history with the historic Sopwith Camel. This detailed replica of one of the most recognizable British single-seat biplanes ever to have graced the skies. Features include a realistic rotating propeller and engine cylinders, hinged tail rudder, realistic tension wires, functioning wing ailerons and tail flaps that can be controlled from the cockpit – just like the real plane! The detail doesn’t stop there; this authentic model has over 880 bricks, including rare dark green, dark tan and metallic silver elements.

  • Features include a rotating propeller and engine cylinders, hinged tail rudder, functioning wing ailerons and tail flaps that can be controlled from the cockpit

It may not be Algy or Wings material, but fun none the less. You can read more about Algy on the TOOFATLardies blog.
