I think so, too. There were 5695 Camels produced during the war. The 
production of DH 9 during the war was 3204 and DH 9A 885. My sources are 
rather old, Profile Publ. no 31 - Sopwith Camel and the good old Kenneth 
Munson's pocket encyclopaedia (I've got newer Camel files buried somewhere 
under huge piles of unecessary modeling stuff during my recent Camel builds 
and I'm too lazy to dig 'em up, since I don't think they'd gi anything 
dramatically different for the production volyme)

The production of DH9s - however - went on after the war the production of 
Camel did not. Maybe there were finally more DH9s produced?
