De Havilland DH 100 F1 Vampire, A78-1, ARDU RAAF Point Cook Vic 1947.

1/72 Airfix, my second Vampire, I modified and replaced a few things, finished in Tamiya and MM enamels with Future and Matt Cote or Micro flat over kit and spare Aussie decals.

10 additional images. Click to enlarge.

  1. Nice build, Allan…I like that scheme, too.

  2. Aussie, aussie, aussie! Looking good indeed. Like the simple colour scheme.

  3. Very neat, Allan, looks bigger that 1/72.

  4. Lovely build, well done 🙂

  5. Allan, pretty little airplane! Is that Australian standards PRU Blue undersides?
    How many did the RAAF end up with? Hard to imagine that the nacelle is partly wood. Wooden jet fighter! Good old DH! They made them pretty. And they worked.
    Got to watch them woodpeckers, though.

  6. Great looking build! I’m also curious about the underside – what exactly is that color?

  7. Love your Aussie builds,
