New Special Hobby 1/72 Koolhoven FK-51

Dutchman Frederick (Frits) Koolhoven (11 January 1886 – 1 July 1946) was an aircraft designer in Britain and his native Netherlands.

From c. 1914 to 1917 Frederick Koolhoven was the chief Aircraft designer at Armstrong Whitworth Aircraft (hence the "F.K." models) where he was responsible for designing the following aircraft:

F.K.1 (1914) – "Sissit"
F.K.3 (1915)
F.K.6 (1916) – Escort fighter triplane
F.K.8 (1916) – "Big Ack" (1,200 built)
F.K.9 (1916)
F.K.10 (1917) – "Quadriplane"

The 1935 Koolhoven F.K.51 was a Military biplane trainer with open seating.
The Royal Dutch East Indies Army bought 38 aircraft between 1936 and 1938 each powered by a 420 hp (313 kW) Wright Whirlwind. The Spanish Republican government ordered 28 F.K.51s, 11 with 400 hp (298 kW) Armstrong Siddeley Jaguar IVa radials and 17 aircraft (designated F.K.51bis) each powered by a 450 hp (335 kW) Wright Whirlwind R-975E radials. Production totaled at least 142 aircraft.
