It's for ages 10 and up.
The Sopwith Camel is considered by many to be the best British fighter used in WWI. The Camel was fast and extremely nimble. Armed with two Vickers 7.7mm machine guns it made a formidable opponent. The name "Camel" came from the hump in the fuselage which covered the two machine guns. As successful as the Camel was, it was difficult to fly. Perhaps that is the secret of the Camel, it was so effective because only the best pilots could fly it.
