The De Havilland Dragon Rapide, the 1930s British bi-plane, was used mainly as a short haul passenger airliner. It was also used as a transport facility for the Railway Air Services, too. Our 1:72 scale model is decorated in all-over silver �aluminium� finish with its G-ACPP identity printed in red and green on the upper and lower wings and along both sides of the fuselage. The Railway Air Services Ltd and the aircraft name �City of Bristol� are also printed beneath the cockpit window, while the circular RAS winged emblem also in red and green is printed on the tail. The grey propeller blades have a black leading edge with brown propeller hub/blade root and the nose cone is transparent. The wings struts are finished in silver while tyres, intakes and exhaust pipes are all black.
