The de Havilland Dragon Rapide was originally introduced in the mid 1930s as a highly successful British passenger bi-plane used for short haul flights. A military version of the Rapide - the Dominie - was used as a navigation and radio trainer aircraft and G-AIYR first flew in 1943 in RAF livery with serial number HG691. After WWII, she subsequently reverted to civilian use, appearing at shows and exhibitions. Following restoration to her RAF markings, this particular Dragon Rapide is now used by the company Classic Wings for pleasure flights out of Duxford.
This 1:72 scale model is a replica of G-AIYR in her RAF guise painted in a satin aluminium finish with yellow propeller tips, wing and fuselage bands. Her serial numbers appear in black on the upper wings and on the sides of the fuselage. Exhaust pipes and tyres are also black and the window glazing is finished in silver. A final detail includes a transparent nose cone.
