The Royal Squadron (32 Royal)
« on: September 16, 2022, 04:52:21 AM »
The premise is the Royals keep 32 Squadron for themselves and populate it with aircraft of various types which are reserved for and used only by the royal family and guests.

The aircraft capabilities range from basic trainer such as the Percival Provost, the Fairey Rotodyne for transport and Hawker Hunter to keep current on jets. And others if I get around to building them.

From the keep it simple department all aircraft will in as seen in the previous photos be finished in red and blue with a write cheat line.


I picked up the Matchbox Percival Provost T.MK.1 at the LHS today so it will be my guinea pig.

Work in progress ::

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

It seems to be going for between $12 and $60 on ebay.
