Firefly and Laser racing dinghy

Frog Models UK produced back in the 1970s a 1/16th kit of the Firefly racing dinghy - hard to find nowadays but not impossible. The original boats were designed for the 1948 Olympics by Uffa Fox, the famous boat designer and Prince Phillip raced one in his younger days.
Revell Germany produced a 1/18th Laser dinghy with a trailer (kit 05459) about 2005 - it is still to be found in many UK model shops. The Laser is still used in today's Olympics.
A good source of these kits is KingKit here in the UK - an excellent trader with many ship kits at very reasonable prices and an excellent reputation for service!
