Gulls, Vega Gulls and Proctors.

Recommended Posts

Although there has been a lot questions and answers on these Percival subjects of the Dora Wings Vega and Proctor thread on Rumormonger I've recently been asked privately by friends to clarify a few build points for these kits.

The wing  landing lights on Vega's:  Many of the earlier Vega's did not have these fitted as they were probably extras and so not specified. Beryl Markham's Vega did not have them fitted, but both the Green and White and the Red and White Henshaw Vega's did have them fitted, As did the 1936 Kings cup winner. The Vega Gull III's with the rounded screens did have the landing lights.

 

Vega's did not have the external under wing oil cooler as on the Proctors and there is a fairing piece on the sprues. I believe that some Proctor 1's did not initially have the oil cooler either.
