The Great War comes to Teralba!

After 3 or so years of construction, Phil finally flew his 1/6 scale Sopwith F1 Camel, built from a VK (Proctor) kit.  That made for two maiden flights within two days for Phil.  Surely a world record.
The model is finished in the livery of Harry Cobby of 4 Sqdn, Australian Flying Corps.  Cobby was the AFC’s top scoring fighter ace of the war.
The aircraft flew well after the elevator was given some down trim.  A big thanks to Johno for sorting out the poorly tuned engine beforehand.
