Explore our selection of diecast models of the Sopwith B.1 - Expertly Crafted, Historically Notable, and Collectible Aircraft Models.

The Sopwith B.1 was a British single-seat bomber aircraft of World War I, notable for its unique role and design. Developed by the Sopwith Aviation Company, it was one of the few dedicated bomber designs of the era, as most World War I bombers were modified reconnaissance or fighter aircraft. The B.1 was characterized by its large, single central bomb bay, designed to carry a heavy payload for its size.

Introduced in 1917, the Sopwith B.1 was used in limited numbers, primarily for specific bombing missions. Despite its brief operational use, the B.1 was significant for its pioneering role in the development of dedicated bomber aircraft. Its distinctive design and specialized role make the Sopwith B.1 a fascinating subject for military aviation historians and model collectors, particularly those interested in the early stages of bomber aircraft development during World War I.
