Ahhh, my very first flight was on one of those - G-AJGT, at Biggin Hill, 197 something :-)

Photo is of a late mark, I wonder if there will be a choice of cockpit hood and engine cowlings for the earlier versions?

Looking forward to this one (irrespective of mark) but it won't stop me asking Airfix for one in 1:48.

Lots of opportunities for after market decals and resin (Riley Doves) .

Hope they also manage a Devon/Sea Devon at some point.....memories of trundling around in them from Northolt as a cheeky young air cadet.

Excellent news! Perhaps the spare engines in the Rareplanes ones stashed away will fit?

Orsum! :) For a moment I read Drover which would have been nice too but a Dove/Devon? will be more than welcome.

I am suprised that Revell or even Airfix have never made a model of this in 1/72 or 1/48 scale, but at least Amodel have taken the plunge, and this will be the first plastic injected kit of the Devon/Dove and hopefully not the last

Love it! I'm in.

Always wanted to build a Biafrian version.

They had one and it crashed or shot down ,it was found in a school...

They built 542 Doves. didn't know it was that many.

Ditto. But unfortunately without the memories.
