Oxford Diecast Avro Anson Mk1 233 Sqn. RAF Coastal Command - 1:72 Scal

Product Code: 72AA004



The Avro Anson Mk I was originally meant for maritime reconnaissance, taking its first flight in 1935 and entering service in 1936 from which point it was used notably with the RAF, Fleet Air Arm and Commonwealth Air Forces. During World War II, the four seater, twin engined British aircraft was also used to train pilots for flying multi-engined bombers.

Here we see it as V-EY K6298 deployed with the RAF at Leuchars on the east coast of Scotland in September 1939, right at the beginning of the conflict, and where its reconnaissance role would have been most useful.  Decorated in the dark green and brown camouflage scheme with the RAF roundels on the upper and underwings, the underside camouflage is a pale green.  The clear canopy reveals a green interior and black instrument panel and note on this release, there is no radio directional finding (RDF) wire aerial loop on the roof.  The gun turret behind the cockpit houses a single black machine gun, all ready for action.
