A product of early 1917, the SE5 was the most stable gun platform used by either side in the great war. A formidable flying machine; it was fast, extremely
strong and easy to fly. Superior to the Albatros, Fokker and Pfalz scouts, it was not even outclassed by the arrival of the Fokker D-7 in May 1918. Flown by such aces as McCudden, Mannock and Albert Ball, who built the bulk of their scores on SE5/5a's. A total of 5,205 SE5/5a were constructed.
Our model (DPCM 124) is an authentic reproduction of this outstanding British
fighter scout. Designed for rubber powered flight either indoors or out.
