DH Rapide card models

Recommended Posts

The Hooton models Rapide is the one to go for if you can still get hold of one.

I have both and concur that the Hooten Rapide is the better of the two, in fact a lot better as it includes some hard accessories such as rubber tyres and vac-formed engine cowls and inj props. The one I have is in Caernarvon Airways livery which I'm not keen on it, hence it is unmade. In the instructions it mentions other livery's including AA, which are much more attractive. But I have never seen one (I stand to be corrected) buts suspect they did not make all that were mentioned. I pretty sure they are hard to come by these days and I suspect will attract healthy prices on the auction sites when one does pop up.

The Schreiber one is in the Kings Flight livery and looks like it could be a tricky build and hence never really plucked up the courage to tackle it.

Just found this thread. I too have the Wooton model, bought in the early 80's from the Caernarfon Air Museum. Also have the Schreiber one bought at Telford about 10 years ago.

Checking through the Wooton instructions and there were four Rapides made. G-ADAH, G-AIYR, G-AHKU and G-AIDL.
