Some classic aircraft get kitted again and again, with every maker churning out versions ad nauseum. Then, there are those planes that are really lucky to be able to get a kit at all. These are the forgotten, obscure or worse yet, useless. There is a third type: an obscure type that has one kit that keeps getting re-popped and passed around like a brown-bagged bottle of Thunderbird at a hobo fire.
A perfect example of this is the 1/72 FROG Blackburn Shark! There must be a lot of love for this thing, because not only did it win the poll for what to review next, but since being first issued in 1968 it has been re-released under a number of names and flags since! If you thought that, until recently, obscure subjects weren’t really a thing, this will prove how wrong you are! Check out this pre-Swordfish stringbag on the Out of Box page!
