Cosy old pair of trainers - Jet Provost and Chipmunk

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Mojo restoration in the form of two basic Airfix kits without much in the way of frippery from me

 

The starter set Jet Provost in the box scheme. Inititally started in the blitzenbuild GB when I got over confident and tried to fo 2 kits in a day. Needless to say this is the one that didn’t get finished in time.

And a DH Chipmunk finished as the AEF plane that I had my first flight in. Made from an elderly Airfix kit with minor mods of a shifted exhaust, added anti spin strakes and a blade aerial.

Knew I still had this squirrelled away. A gloriously sunny day so we flew with the canopy open :) A really special memory

Amazing that they were still using Chipmunks in 1990. I had my first AEF flight in one in 1965, at RAF Turnhouse, Edinburgh

Growing up in the 70's a mile or so from Leeming these two were a very common sight and sound.

Very nice work.

Roger.
