physical_description
Trident style aircraft with swept back wings. The engines are at the back around the tail. It is painted cream on the top of the fuselage and tail and dark turquoise blue on the rest of the body and wings. The engines are trimmed with silver. Windows are indicated by black painted squares. Behind the nose and on the top and underside of the wings are the RAF red, white and blue circles. On the either side of the tail is a panel of red, white and blue above the number AV775. In the underside between the windows is cut a rectangular hole to take a stand. The stand is missing. The plane is in the RAF Transport Command livery. It is likely that this is an Aifix Kit Model, in scale 1:24 or 1:32. There are no maker's markings, however, is the type of model made by the company at that time.
