Hawker Siddley Dominie T.1 to HRH Carrier
« on: September 23, 2022, 09:31:24 AM »
Hi all

Second entry to run in parallel with the Hawk.



 I was going to do a back story about the Queens flight acquiring a couple of these but in the words of the late great and still missed Brian Da Basher I got 'skunked by reality' they did use VIP 125's all be it CC2's.

So a very tenuous backstop

One aircraft was taken off the flight line and converted to a VIP configuration for use as a more clandestine transport for the Royals. It was given a relatively plain white paint scheme to blend in with most bizjets of the time. It kept its registration and call sign so to the outside world it was still a training aircraft. It was used for a few years then quietly returned to its training role when the need for an incognito operation was no longer required.

More when it happens......

I was going to do a CC.2, the grey scheme with blue trim, but for that I'd need a Matchbox version, and they're not cheap . . .


cheers,

Look for a Sword U125 kit -- they have one as a C-29A too. These are Hawker 125-800's

I looked at one of those, the windshield and engines are wrong for a CC.2, 'Spose I could have Whiffed it as a 'CC.4', but I decided to go in a somewhat different direction. More when the kit arrives . . .  ;)

Hi all

Got some work done on this one. It is one of the re-released 'classic' series but I don't think they have done much to the molds, cockpit detail is spartan and cabin detail non existent there is some flash and part fit is acceptable given the age of the kit.

Here is the story so far......



I'm using elastic bands because none of my clamps would stay in position

I haven't bothered to detail the interior you can see very little through the windows.

More when it happens...
