Thanks, Kevin! I don’t get to see this, usually. 50s RAF is an interest of mine, I used to get RAF Flying Review, then Air Pictorial. Both accelerated my downward polystyrene obsession.
Have you got a Beverly or an Argosy?
Both a vacuform and avia raris. For a Yank, it doesn’t get any better.
Power to your elbow!

I used to have the Airways Argosy but sold it last year, 90 % of my kits are vacform though, I find them more satisfying

A most excellent rendition of a an aircraft not often seen. Outstanding work – especially given it’s a vacuform kit (wouldn’t have guessed it…..looks great).

Great workmsnship on this unusual subject. I’m sure there are a lot of modellers out there with an interest in this era and these aircraft types. Thanks for posting.

Kevin, the DH Devon Dove looks like a Master piece. Could we get some more photo’s please? I keep on wanting to move my mouse in hopes that the photos will turn and show some more of your stunning work…but, alas there stills.

A classic build of an classic plane.
Well done sir.

Another patient modeler that doesn’t let vacuform “scare” them. Vacuform manufactures did offer some off the wall aircraft “kits” (and I use that term loosely), stuff the injection plastic boys would never sell. Great job on the plane, did you have to scribe the panel lines or was this one of the sophisticated kits? I still have 5 vacuform aircraft unbuilt, all stuff you’d never see Revell mold…Post some more photos, it’s contest worthy!

Wouldn’t have thought a vac-form kit could look so good! Excellent, and I don’t have one of these in my stash (I’ve got about one of everything…), so it makes me (sort-of) want to try vac-form…

Very nice model, I like the built up engine!

Rareplanes was always the Duesenberg Model J of vacuforms. All the extra work you put in with the lowered flaps and the displaced elevators and opened hatches really looks good.

A real classic, Kevin, especially in this colour scheme, very well done.

Cheers for all your kind comments, this was my first attempt at a vacform model that was completed, I had done some other vacfoms when I was about 14 years old but never finished any of them, I have another one of these in the stash, I will probably make that into a DH Sea Devon
