Jet Provost T. Mk5 – 1 FTS, Royal Air Force


£49.99

 

Superb 1/72 scale model by SkyMax of BAC Jet Provost T5 XW289, in the livery of 1 Flying Training School, Royal Air Force, based at Linton On Ouse. Complete with intricate panel lines, optional undercarriage and canopy positions and stand. Complements the Corgi range superbly. An essential part of any RAF collection. The Skymax range has now been cancelled, so no more of this casting are ever likely to be made.

The BAC Jet Provost (originally built by Hunting Percival) was a British jet-powered trainer used by the Royal Air Force (RAF) from 1955 to 1993. The Jet Provost was also a successful export product, serving in many air forces worldwide.
