Includes paint guide and decals for both aircraft listed. Never started. The resin parts are still in the factory sealed bag and the injection molded parts have been inventoried complete. With decals and instructions. The CAMS 37 was the first design for Chantiers Aéro-Maritimes de la Seine (CAMS) by their new head designer, Maurice Hurel. The prototype was displayed at the 1926 Salon de l'Aeronautique in Paris and first flew the same year. After testing it was quickly was ordered into service before the end of the year. The 37 was a conventional biplane flying boat very similar to previous CAMS designs, being driven by a pusher propeller whose engine was mounted on struts in the interplane gap. Series production was from 1928 to 1939. The first and main production version was the amphibious CAMS 37A that was bought by the French Navy, the Portuguese Navy and the aeroclub of Martinique. Most were shipboard spotter and recon aircraft for the French Navy, eight went to Portugal, then there was the 37.11 or 37E training flying boat and finally the 37Lia enclosed cabin liaison amphibian. Total production was about 150 with most going to the French Air Force and Navy. The CAMS 37A had a very active and successful career, serving aboard almost all of the Navy's capital ships. Trials were conducted by Compagnie Générale Transatlantique on the SS Île de France to evaluate operating catapult-launched mailplanes from transatlantic liners with two specially-built 37/10s. René Guilbaud made a famous and newsworthy long-distance flight over Africa and the Mediterranean between 12 October 1927 and 9 March 1927, venturing as far as Madagascar before returning to Marseille. In the course of the flight Guilbaud covered 22,600 km (14,000 mi) in 38 stages without incident. However, aviation was moving quickly during that time and soon the CAMS 37 was outdated. It was gradually withdrawn from front line duties in the mid-to-late 1930s, and when World War II started in September 1939, the aircraft had been relegated to training and communication roles. About 60 were still flying at the start of WWII. Some trainers remained in use after the Armistice with a single example joining the Free French Navy in Tahiti and even and with a Vichy France unit in Indochina until 1942. Some examples were reportedly sold to the aeroclub of Martinique

Unicraft Martin-Baker Tankbuster, 1/72

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

Sold   

Still factory tape sealed. Rare. Nicely detailed, limited-run resin kit. the following history is from www.plane-encyclopedia.com: In early 1942, the Royal Air Force began seeking a new ground-attack aircraft that would replace the 40mm-armed Hawker Hurricane Mk.IID. An order was officially placed on March 7th for a specialized ground attacker that would be used against a multitude of targets including ground units, enemy aircraft, transports/shipping, and a main focus on destroying tanks. To accomplish the destruction of the aforementioned targets, the aircraft was meant to use more heavier guns than the Hurricane Mk.IID. Alternative weapon arrangements included: three 40mm Vickers S cannons, four 20mm Hispano Mk.V cannons, a combination of two 20mm with two 40mm cannons, six unguided rocket (RP) racks with two 20mm cannons or one 47mm Vickers gun with two 20mm cannons. Two 500Ibs bombs could also be added. The expected speed for the design had to reach at least 280mph (450 km/h) at 3,000ft (900 m). Visibility was also a necessity and forward view had to be unobstructed and clear. Full production was to be expected by 1944. The programs would be overseen by the Air Staff. Over 10 different designs by several aircraft companies were subsequently created for this program. A majority of them were of unorthodox design. Armstrong-Whitworth (AW.49) and Boulton-Paul (P.99) both created twin boom designs. Boulton-Paul also submitted a canard design labelled P.100 and a biplane design labelled P.101, the latter being seen as a safe alternative to the radical canard and twin boom designs prevalent through the program. Perhaps the most interesting of the designs was the submission by Martin-Baker. At the time of its submission, Martin Baker had been working steadily on their MB.5 project, which would eventually become one of the best performing piston aircraft built by Britain, but this wouldn’t be completed until 1944. Their design for the ground attacker was submitted several months after the order was given by the Air Staff and was only named the “Tankbuster”. Martin Baker’s concept was for a twin boom design that deviated extensively from the given requirements. The aircraft was armed with a single 6-pounder (57mm) cannon, and the aircraft would be completely encased in 1/2-inch armor. The armor itself weighed 4,900Ibs (2,200kg).The project wasn’t very impressive nor reasonable in the eyes of the Air Staff, especially compared to the other designs in the program. Its single large-caliber gun extremely limited its target range and it would only have been able to attack one of six predicted target types the program requested. The aircraft lacked any other offensive or defensive armament and would rely on its armor alone to protect itself, a gambit that other designs in the program resolved by following the armaments listed by the Air Staff. Attempts to add more ordnance such as additional guns, rockets or bombs to the wings would have added too much stress on the airframe. The main feature of the aircraft was the root of its problems, its gun. The gun itself couldn’t be removed from the airframe and an aircraft going into battle with a single weapon would be inefficient for resources. The Tankbuster didn’t meet the armament expectations and fell under the expected speed by 10mph (16 km a h). On April 15th, 1943, Air Marshall F J Linnell (who was a good friend of James Martin, a founder of the company) advised Martin-Baker to drop development of the Tankbuster in favor of continuing work on the more successful MB.5 project going on at the same time. Near the later days of April 1943, the Air Staff brought the program the Tankbuster was designed for to an end. They concluded that, at the time, developing and producing an entirely new ground attack aircraft would impede the current war programs and that the submissions were too specialized in design compared to modifying aircraft already being produced for ground attack duties.

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

Sold   

Still factory tape sealed and very rare. Nicely detailed, limited-run resin kit. OPB stands for for Odnomotornyj Pikirujuschij Bombardirovschik or single-engine dive bomber. It was designed by S.A.Kocherigin. The project started in 1938. The aircraft was finished in 1941, but the intended M-90 powerplant was not ready. The team began to modify the airframe for the readily available M-82A engine, but in the start of 1942 project was canceled and design bureau was disbanded. This low-wing monoplane with an inverse gull wing would have carried a single 500kg bomb inside the fuselage. When the bong was dropped, it would swing clear of the propeller arc on a parallelogram support.
