Oxford Diecast Avro Anson AW665 PPB71 Squadron RAAF

Product Code: 72AA005



Our fifth Avro Anson is a replica of an aircraft deployed by No. 71 Sqn., Royal Australian Air Force, at Lowood, Queensland in 1943. The Squadron was an RAAF maritime patrol squadron during WWII, formed in January 1943 and operating off the east coast of Australia, primarily deployed on anti-submarine patrols and convoy escort missions.  The Squadron was disbanded in August 1944.

Our 1:72 scale replica represents one of the squadron’s Ansons, coded PP-B, AW665, decorated in the experimental anti-submarine colour scheme of dark slate/dark sea grey camouflage to the upper surfaces with a matt and gloss white to the fuselage, engine sides and under surfaces. The cockpit interior is green with black instrument panel. Further detail sees the engine hub and wheel struts painted silver. Note too on this release, the absence of a machine gun in the gun turret.
