TRADE NOTES

To Frog goes our acclaim for a most attractive pair in the 'Fokker D. XXI' and 'Macchi 202'. Each can accept extra titivation, and the Italian fighter is a shade overscale but their main appeal is that they can be decorated in so many different schemes. December's contribution to the Frog 2|- series is another Frenchman, the 'Morane Saulnier 406C1'. Confusion is bound to arise with the existing 'Dewoitine 520' kit of similar size and configuration: but this all makes for extra interest.

NEW KITS FROM THE U.K.

Continuing their commendable series of kits of lesser-known types. Frog have now issued 1/72nd scale kits of two more fighters—the Macchi C.202 and the Morane-Saulnier M.S.406.

The Morane-Saulnier M.S.406 kit is not quite up to the standard of the Folgore although equally welcome and another subject for our colour page in the near future. Inaccuracies appear to have found their way into the nose contours and cabin shape, but these faults can be corrected. Like that of the Folgore, the detailing of the M.S.406 is good if somewhat light, and careful work with the paint brush is necessary if detail is not to be lost.

The MS406 assembles quite easily, although the wing attachment tongues are much smaller than their corresponding fuselage slots, hence the wing positioning must be done carefully to avoid different incidence settings. As in the C202 kit, the transfers are restricted to national markings only and they are of poor quality insofar as the red is not of constant hue.

Rework of the model itself is only necessary on the elevators, in order to obtain a sharp trailing edge. A more accurate colour scheme than that shown on the box is illustrated in " Aircraft Camouflage 1914-54."

There will be some exciting additions to the Frog range of plastics during 1964. A complete new range of 1/72 kits called "Trail Blazers " has been launched, starting with the Supermarine S6.B now in the shops at 2s. 6d. Later on there will be a Spirit of St. Louis. Bristol 138 (altitude record breaker) and a Vickers Vimy. There is a new range of 1/144 scale airliners, the first model being a Super V.C.10 complete with flashing navigation lights. The existing ranges will be extended and we eagerly await the Tunkers Ju.88, which is scheduled for late summer.

NEW AND IN VIEW NEW AIRCRAFT KITS

FROG. For some little time now rumour has had it that Frog were revising and updating many of their older kits, and at the Brighton Toy Fair rumour became fact with the release of those described below. Retailing at 3/- each in a new clear plastic pack, complete with coloured dramatic art on the front and the now very popular Profile style drawings on the back of the display card, these will certainly catch the eye in any model shop display.

Each kit has had all traces of the original surface detail removed and replaced by fine and accurate new detail. Unfortunately, costs have prevented full corrections, and such refinements as cut-out wheel wells are still omitted. Cockpit canopies have received attention where necessary and are far better than in the original kits, while completely new markings and insignia are given, two alternatives being provided for each type as follows :-
Morane Saulnier 406 F224F
- Morane Saulnier 406 - Adjutant Pierre le Gloan G.C. NI/6 (5 Esc) 1940
- D 3801 of Swiss Air Force.

The very high standard of decals common to all Frog kits of recent months is maintained in these 'packaged' kits. All are matt or semi-gloss with excellent register, and the minute detailing, such as that on 'kill' markings or the MC 202 insignia, is clearly readable if one uses a magnifying glass.

It is to be hoped that other kits from the Frog range will be upgraded similarly as time goes by, and we look forward to these in due course.

index 157 Samoliot, Ogoniok, Moscow, 1980-1981, early issue 40.000


Коробка индекс 157 Самолёт, Огонёк 1980-82

Самый первый вариант коробки с ранней эмблемой Московского опытного завода "Огонёк" и первый вариант инструкции для модели. В таком виде она поступила в продажу в 80-м году или, возможно, даже в 79-м. Тираж инструкций составлял 40 тыс экземпляров, что должно соответствовать количеству выпущенных моделей в такой упаковке. Отливки моделей из светло-серого пластика в такой упаковке не уступали по качеству отливкам, поставлявшимся для британской компании NOVO Toys Ltd в конце 70-х.

Коробка индекс 157 Самолёт, Огонёк середина 80-х

Вариант коробки Московского опытного завода "Огонёк" после смены эмблемы завода и обновлённая инструкция для сборки модели середина 80-х. Тираж инструкций для этого варианта - 50 тыс экземпляров. Для упаковки использовался менее плотный картон, хотя качество картона стало выше. Предыдущие тиражи на импорт и на внутренний рынок в некоторой степени износили пресс-форму и очень тонкие линии внешней расшивки стали менее чёткими. Модель продолжала отливаться из того же светло-серого пластика. Инструкция стала компактнее и печаталась на листе бумаги практически квадратной формы, что стало стандартом для большинства моделей московского производства на всех заводах: Огонёк, Кругозор и Прогресс. Ещё до середины 80-х выпуск модели на "Огоньке" был прекращён и пресс-формы были переданы на Одесскую фабрику игрушек.

    HELLERS MORANE

    Whereas the French Heller company's kit of the Curtiss Hawk 75A falls a little below the standards set by this concern's excellent 1/72nd scale Musée series in some respects, its latest World War II offering, the Morane-Saulnier M.S.406, isexcellent in every respect. The pressings are clean, the component parts fit precisely, and the transfer sheet is very good indeed. Our only criticism is that the ribbing on the upper surfaces of this fighter's wings is rather heavy, but this may be easily reduced by filing. Like the Hawk 75A, the M.S.406 was by no means among the most noteworthy of World War II's fighters, but no collection of World War II fighter models claiming to be representative can afford to be without this little warplane, and we could not ask for a better kit.
