1:200 scale White Metal Cold War British Military Aircraft Model Kit

The Kit contains parts and decals to finish the model successfully

Colour schemes are supplied for the actual aircraft and some Ôwhat if?Õ schemes.

Decals are provided for all the prototypes and for the B type marks used when the machine was parked on the Thames during the Festival of Britain.

What if? Schemes are provided for three possible uses.

The first is SEAC markings used in the Pacific in WWII. The aircraft would have been white with grey upper surfaces.

Secondly is a Royal Navy scheme for use in Korea. This would have been Sky and Extra Dark Sea Grey with black and white stripes on wings and fuselage.

In fact, the Royal Navy rarely used flying boats but the RAF did so RAF markings for Korea are also included. Colour would have been Slate Grey and Green uppers and white sides and undersides.

The SR.A/1 was designed to be used in the pacific war but was not ready in time. It was cancelled after the war with claims that it was too slow. The master for this model was made by Tommy Atkins who flew Meteors in 1 sqn and flew chase during some of the trials. He said it was much faster than claimed and left his chase plane standing.
