12-foot-span DeHavilland Vampire

12-foot-span DeHavilland Vampire

We love the Canadian trainer scheme on this 12-foot, 3-inch-span turbine-powered jet! Built by Andy Johnson from a Falcon Aviation kit, the 60-pound aircraft is powered by a Wren 160. Thanks to the father and son videographer team of Pete and Dean Coxon for filming this at a Large Model Association event in East Kirby, UK.

Note: contributor Rich Uravitch has kindly informed us that the black and yellow is actually a RAF high-vis  scheme applied to aircraft that were used to tow targets!

  1. That’s an Australian serial number……. A couple years later, the RAAF changed to the kangaroo roundel to make it easier to tell the difference’

  2. Very nice…good job.

  3. Canadian? Australian insignia and registration markings!

  4. Superb !! You have done a superb job in making this De-Havilland Vampire. Down the memory lane !!

  5. It’s neither Canadian, nor training, nor RAF!

    It’s an RAAF target towing Vampire. One of the remaining ones is on display at the RAAF museum at Point Cook.


  6. The Swiss Army had this fighter for many years and also Venoms after the Vampire.
