Scale I Build

Found 1 result

  1. This is an original 1956 edition of Hawk's Supermarine S6B airplane. The real plane was designed to compete in the 1931 Schneider Trophy Races. Powered by a Rolls-Royce "R" V-12, putting out 2,600 hp. It won the '31 Schneider races at 314.8 mph. Later it became the first plane to go over 400 mph. Supermarine would go on and build the famous Spitfires that fought bravely in the famous Battle of Britain. Both the S6B and Spitfire were designed R.J. Mitchell. The Hawk kit itself is listed by most sources as being in 1/48 scale. Though neither the original box or instructions give a scale. It looks like it might be a little smaller than 1/48, compared to other 1/48 scale airplanes in my collection. It builds quite nicely. The only problem I had were with the 63 year old decals. Despite using Microscale's Liquid Decal Film and Micro Sol setting solution. But still I think it turned out pretty good. I hope you guys like it and agree.
