SE5A Model Aeroplane

  • Sale
  • Regular price £29.99


The SE5A was designed to gain air superiority over the German Luftstreitkrafte towards the end of World War 1.

Although not as manoeuvrable in a dog fight as the SE5A's contemporary the Sopwith Camel, its earlier arrival into the war, alongside its speed, strength and stability, made it a favourite of many pilots.
