Huma 1/72 Klemm Kl-25
|PRICE:||$22 from NKR|
The Klemm Kl 25 was a light sport and training aircraft first flown in 1928. Around 600 were built up until the mid 1930's. It was notable for the low power engines that were used, between 20 and 94 h.p. depending on the version, of which there was many.
The British Aircraft Swallow was a licence build version of the Klemm Kl 25 light aircraft. It was also licence built in the United States by Aeromarine.
Coming in a large, top opening box, there are two sprues of 34 parts in light grey plastic, one of the sprues is small and has tiny parts mainly for detailing the cockpit. There are two injection moulded windscreens on a clear sprue. A single crew figure is included.
The parts are finely moulded, with
rather heavy engraved panel lines and a fabric effect on the flying surfaces.
There is a hint of flash on some of the parts, and a mould joint line is
visible. There are some ejector pin marks that will be hidden after
construction. Ten of
the parts go up to make a very detailed two
seat cockpit, including rudder bars,
control sticks and what appears to be a Gosport tube.
A small model of a military training and civil sport and touring aircraft. The aircraft was widely used and exported during the 1930's so there is scope for a variety of civil and military schemes.
