RAF Display Teams

The Red Arrows became the RAF’s official display team in 1965, but before this, there were a number of unofficial and semi official teams.

Very nice Yellowjack. I plan to build one, but with the black tail and another Gnat with the box decoration.
Nice hangar and Chipmunk too 😉

Hi @Woody ... it's a great little hanger. Going to diorama it soon, so may not have access for much longer to do these photo shoots against

Nice result with the Jet Provost too, Jonathan. I have same kit, so also I will build the Red Pelicans.
I like the metallic look in your models 👍.

Beautiful models (and from my own experience I can say that Provost is a very modeller-friendly kit)... Maybe the Black Adder too 😄

This is exactly what I read too at first sight - Black Adder team 😄
Must be the heat... 😉

Hehe .. yes, the Provost was very modeller-friendly. I especially liked the cockpit detailing.

Nice Hunter's gloss black effect. What paint have you used?

Hi Cuajete. I use Vallejo black and then Pledge Revive It Floor Gloss. It was a varnish I was recommended via a forum some time ago and it works ok for me.
