Indeed - so you are safe no matter what you do


I do like that AA scheme


If you are into Dr Who/Torchwood, this is a nice fictional scheme:

I thought it may have been to allow for an astro dome to be fitted, given that the Dominie was commissioned as a navigation and radio trainer, but looking through Air-Britain’s “The de Havilland Dragon/Rapide Family” I see pictures of the DH84, 86 and 89 with those discs. They are certainly solid whatever their function or purpose.

If anyone is potentially interested in a decal for the AA scheme shown above for the Lukgraph kit, could you let me know by replying here please?  The only way I can do it is to silkscreen print the yellow markings for the upper wings, and laser print the rest of the black stuff  


The real airplane had a shiny metal AA badge in the stripe at the nose (not shown above).  I've been thinking about how that could be done... If I were to make the badge a "punch out" in the black (ie: clear), and you very carefully put down a little disk of shiny Bare Metal Foil in exactly the right spot, it would probably be as close to the real thing as it's possible to get.


It would look something like this:




Let me know!





Yes please, I'd be in two for sets of AA decals.


I registered on this forum so I could place my interest in these decals!


The engine nacelles would have to be altered an a faired  DF loop would need to be added to represent the AA machine, right?


Also, I have not seen an image of the internal fit out for the AA aircraft, anyone got any they are willing to share?

From what I've seen it doesn't appear on all airframes - but where you can see it it's solid.


No idea what it's for...





Its an escape hatch of sorts, its a thinly faired over part of the fuselage where the occupants could punch out through the fabric if the need arose.  Most Rapides have one, some two.
