Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Supermarine S5 Schneider Trophy 1927/1929 The Supermarine S5 was built to contest the 1927 Schneider Trophy and as part of a strong British contingent in the Venice race, the type took the first two places. Both of these are offered as decal options in the kit along with a solitary entry from 1929 when one of the older Napier-powered machines was sent to back up the newer Rolls Royce-powered S6s, finishing third. The majority of the kit parts are cleanly cast in resin, with just a few feed tags to remove and the main fuselage casting includes some vent detail which is unique to the later version and will need filling on the 1927 ones. Some of the smaller parts are in white metal and there’s a fair amount of photo-etch including surface radiators, exhaust trims, numerous fasteners and spokes for the wheels of the landing trolley.
