Turquoise Blue single engine civil aircraft in the FSM homepage header
Posted by Greg on Thursday, June 13, 2019 10:06 AM

I'm intrigued by it.

Is there info on it somewhere on this site or in this month's magazine? Who can identify the aircraft for me?

I thought at first glance it was a Bf108...but now (on my phone) I can't get the image to come up, to double-check.Embarrassed

I was wrong:

It's from the 'Workbench Review' of the Dora Wings Percival Vega Gull from February.

(if you click on the image, it says it in the url.)

Just checked this out, a kit I didn't know existed. If you think the turquoise looks cool, check out this box art.

Awesome. Thank you, Greg. Bow Down

For whatever reason, the image is not clickable in my browser, but with your description am able to find stuff via search engine.

The Red/white box art scheme is neat indeed. I'm still smitten with the Turquoise though. I'd never heard of the aircraft. Neat little taildragger, isn't it?

I believe I may be smitten as well. It seems the Gull was the model before the Percival Proctor...an Army Co-operation aircraft I was much more familiar with.

It looks like Dora Wings has done a whole range of related birds...some in 1/48 as well as 1/72.

First I'd heard of Dora Wings, too. I'll check them out. Thanks again.

Greg;

 That was some nice Box art ! I like the little bird anyway.

Looks like a Percival Gull of some sort.  Percival made a series of planes of various types of Gull.  They all look so similar I find them hard to tell apart, but I think it may be a Mew Gull.

Yes, Gregbale mentioned that. Thanks for taking the time to comment, Don.
