Percival K3 Vega Gull. The next development in the Vega Gull was the series 3 (or K3) model. A redesigned windscreen is the most obvious change as well as the loss of the overhead rear passenger windows. K3's were fitted with CSU operated Gipsy Six II or Gipsy Queen II & VP Props. This model tries to represent C/n 105, one of 8 ordered by the Air Ministry & taken on charge by 24 Sqdn Hendon in April 1939. She survived WWII & was sold to Essex Aero Ltd in 1945 becoming G-AHET. The paint scheme depicted as P5989 is shown here, having been totally re-textured under instruction from Nigel Richards, & with a lot of experimentation by me, to try and acheive a more realistic silver paint finish. (I think it looks better in FSX). Nigel also kindly let me use, as a basis for my male occupants faces, his, as used in his Avro 621 series models. G-AHET passed through various other owners, the most famous being Mike Hawthorn, the racing driver. She seems to have met her fate with Noel Husbands, being badly damaged in a forced landing in May 1960. Keith Paine

Originally intended as a competitor to the highly successful Douglas DC-3, which was the pre-eminent airliner of the time, the Curtiss CW20 was designed to operate on routes of up to 1000km (540nm), which at the time accounted for 90% of the US domestic airline system. This is a Curtiss C-46 in TransAir colours in an early painting. TransAir was one of the early charter airlines in Sweden. Mike Stone made this aircraft , repainted by Ronny Olofsson. Thank you Garry J Smith for your lovely metal texture
