58-20440 1:12 1930 4.5 Litre Bentley

With its front mounted supercharger, the 4.5 litre Bentley became the quintessential British sports car of the 20's and 30's. It was shaped from the earlier 1-cylinder 3 Litre, but produced substantialy more power with its blown engine. As such, it was a stunning road car and a perfect contender for endurance racing.Due to its dramatic appearences at Le Mans and successes in speed trails at the Brookland circuit, racing and winning became synonymous with Bentley during this period, and few other models capture this image as well as the 4.5 litre Bentley. The number nine car featured in this kit, UU5872, is the original Birkin Team car known as 'Birkin Blower No.2'. This is the car that made a dramatic appearence at the 1930 Le Mans 24 Hour Race.In 1929, Bentley replaced the 4.5 litre and opted to race the higher capacity Speed 6. Three 'Birkin Blowers' were entered to compete alongside the Bentley Speed 6's at the 1930 Le Mans. In the event, only one 'Blower' (Birkin's own No.2 car), started the race.Under Walter Owen Bentley's tactical team management, Birkins role was to draw the Mercedes of Carraciola and Werner into a high speed duel, which he successfully acheived. The Blower lead from the start, swapping the lead with the Mercedes throughout the night, until eventually the German car withdrew with a blown engine. Birkin's success came at a cost, as he had to retire after 20 hours with a bent valve, leaving the two Speed 6's to take 1st and 2nd Places.

58-11170 1:144 Apollo Saturn V

The Saturn V, developed at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Cnetre under the direction of Wenrher von Braun, was the largest in a family of liquid-propellant rockets that solved the problem of getting to the Moon. The three stage rocket was taller than a 36 story building and was the largest, most powerful rocket ever built. A total of thirty-two Saturns of all types were launched; with not one failing. Fifteen of these were Vs.With a cluster of five powerful engines in each of the first two stages and using high-performance liquid hydrogen fuel for the upper stages, the Saturn V was one of the great feats of 20th-century engineering. Inside, the rocket contained three million parts in a labyrinth of fuel lines, pumps, gauges, senors, circuits, and switches; each of which had to function reliably.The Saturn V was flight-tested twice without a crew. The first manned Saturn V sent the Apollo 8 astronauts into orbit around the Moon in December 1968. after two more missions to test the lunar landing vehicle, in July 1969 a Saturn V launched the crew of Apollo 11 to the first manned landing on the moon.
