Dinky 734 Supermarine Swift

The Dinky Supermarine Swift. Released October 1955 with a price of 2/-, reduced to 1/9 by February 1956 a price that remained throughout its production until production was terminated in 1962. Advertised in the July 1958 Meccano Magazine.
In 1953, the real aircraft held the world absolute speed record, 737.7 mph or 1,187km/h. The pilot was Wing Commander Mike Lithgow and the record was held for 8 days. The squadrons: 2 (1956), 4, 56 (1954) and 79 were equipped with Swifts. The aircraft first flew in 1948, but less than 200 were built out of an initial order for 497. The Swift was built as a replacement for the Meteor, but had problems with abrupt pitching and the reheat not working at high altitudes. These problems led to the Swift being grounded for periods, notably after one fatal crash. The plane never really saw action, although it was stationed in Germany during the Cold War, with the Mark 6 used for photo reconnaissance. In short, the Swift was not very successful, was never required as the fall back aircraft for the slightly slower Hawker Hunter and was largely replaced by it.. Dinky 734 in detail...

French Dinky 60D Sikorski S.58 Helicopter

The French Dinky Sikorski S.58 Helicopter. French Dinky introduced the fourth model in their aviation series during May, 1957. However, the Sikorsky S 58 helicopter, 60D, was only advertised in the Meccano magazine from June in the same year. 87mm diameter rotor-blades surmounted the aircraft’s 80 mm long cabin, decorated in the silver, white and blue livery of Sabena, the former Belgium national airline. The model cost 290 old francs, about 6/-. It was renumbered 802, in 1959, shortly before it was withdrawn.

Produced by Igor Sikorsky’s ‘United Technologies Corporation’, the Sikorsky S-58 was the last of its type, piston engine driven. Originally built for the US Navy, it first flew in 1954. Built under license in the UK by Westland Aircraft from 1958, it was known as the Wessex. Subsequent helicopters were powered by turbine engines.

Sabena, (Societé Anonye Belge d’ Exploitation de la Navigation Aérienne) was the Belgium national airline from 1923 -2001. The company specialised in long-haul flights to Africa, but used the Sikorsky S-58, between 1956-1963, to ferry passengers and freight between Brussels, Paris, Rotterdam, Bonn and other major cities in the region. In 2001, Sabena went into bankruptcy, following the demise of Swissair, who owed the Belgian carrier a considerable sum of money, estimated about £84 million. Parts of the business were taken over by SN Brussels Airlines, which subsequently merged with Virgin Express. available in white finish. French Dinky 60D in detail...
