LEGO® 10226 Sopwith Camel

10226 Sopwith Camel is a Creator set released in June 2012. It includes 883 pieces.

The Sopwith Camel was a British First World War single-seat biplane fighter introduced on the Western Front in 1917. Manufactured by Sopwith Aviation Company, it had a short-coupled fuselage, heavy, powerful rotary engine, and concentrated fire from twin synchronized machine guns.

The plane uses mostly dark green, dark tan, dark grey and black parts. The control stick in the cockpit actually moves the ailerons, elevators and rudder through strings routed through the plane. The rotary engine spins when the propeller is spun.
