Can you I.D. the kit manufacturer for these two aircraft kits?

Thanks for the reply. I'm wondering, though, why it would be Frog/Novo when the box top lettering appears to be in Cyrillic?

Shows you what I know! Or don't know!

 

Thanks guys, we'll go with Frog/Novo.

The Wallace was one of a series of "record breaking " aircraft kitted by Frog. This particular aircraft was modified from a standard Westland Wallace as the P.V.6 for the overflight of Everest. Other kits in the series included the Vimy distance record setter ( hence no gun positions), the Bristol 138 altitude record setter, and the Fairey Delta 2. While admittedly crude by modern standards, I always felt Frog deserved a lot of credit for manufacturing kits of unusual aircraft-and they usually fit together pretty well. Nick

These two items were included in the huge collection of items recently received at the IPMS Donation Station which was set up at the IPMS North Central Texas ScaleFest event on May 21st. All of the items collected at the Donation Station will be used in the IPMS Support the Troops program. Thanks for the assistance given to identify these two items.
