1/50 117 SMER Fokker S-11 Instructor Trainer
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Good++
Rare kit of the Dutch Trainer in a large near 1/48 scale. Never started. Factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Dependable, sturdy, and reportedly docile, this primary trainer was developed soon after WW II, according to one source from a design concept created during the Occupation. Exported to Brazil, Bolivia, Israel, Italy and Paraguay (export decals not included in this kit). Some examples manufactured under license in Brazil (including a tricycle gear version) and Italy. A basic, utilitarian design sometimes compared to the DeHavilland Chipmunk. Several examples reported in civilian GA and aerobatic use as recently as 2017.
