Revell Martin Mariner, Convair Tradewind, Martin Seamaster (box scale)
August 8, 2013 in Aviation
From days long past…and reissued, (at least once), came these odd scaled, inexpensive little jewels. .I had already built the Tradewind, as a kid, and re-did it as part of a club project on resurrecting old models, I built a second one to complete this trio. All three were simple kits with few parts, but subjects I found interesting. The seaplanes represent the end of an era, and the models, the end of the box scale era (more or less) Although OOP, they can still be found thrrough various vendors at shows, at reasonable cost.
