Captain Eddie Rickenbacker, WWI Kit

As the United States’ most successful fighter ace of World War I, Captain Eddie Rickenbacker was credited with 26 aerial combat victories.  Even as a young man, he exhibited a strong thrill seeking behavior--he tried to “fly” a bicycle outfitted with an umbrella off of a barn roof and drove in the inaugural Indianapolis 500.  It was as a driver that Rickenbacker first served in France, but soon finagled his way into flight school.  He was chosen over several senior rank fliers to head the 94th Aero Squadron, nicknamed the Hat-in-the-Ring Gang.  There he emphasized three core principles:  Never attack unless there is at least 50–50 chance of success; always break off an engagement that seems hopeless; know the difference between cowardice and common sense.

1/30 Scale Resin and Metal Kit 
Unpainted, Unassembled

   Our models come out of the box pre-cleaned and prepped. Their polyurethane resin construction means sharp, crisp detail with no flash and little pitting.  The metal parts are clean and sturdy. 
   Our model kits are simple to assemble but by no means are they simple toys. They are highly detailed, historically accurate model kits – the most ardent modeler can’t deny the quality and detail found in our kits!
   At our core, we here at Campaign Miniatures are avid modelers, collectors, and above all, historians. We put a lot of research and analysis to make all of our products correct and accurate. And all Campaign Miniatures are compatible in size and scale with W.Britain figures and accessories so you can mix and match your completed kits. Keep an eye out for our ever expanding range of figures, vehicles, and accessories.
