Default Air Southwest DHC Dash 8-311

Air Southwest was established in May 2003 by Sutton Harbour Holdings[4] to fill the void left by the withdrawal of British Airways from the South West of England. Its first hub was set up at Plymouth City Airport and operations began on 26 October 2003, the day after British Airways withdrew from the market. The initial route was Plymouth-Newquay-London Gatwick. This was soon followed by the introduction of the Plymouth-Bristol-Manchester route which was later extended to Jersey. The airline ceased trading in 2011.

Another nice one.
Saw a few of these when holidaying in Newquay a few years back. I'll have to dig out a piccy.

I wish I had your skill and your knowledge to make these beautiful decals.

Are you using a jet ink printer or a laser one ?

I plan to make in the coming weeks a Baade 152 and the decals will be a real problem.

Greetings Jean. I use a basic home ink jet printer, but it’s downfall is I can’t print white. If your interested this is a link to an article I wrote about making decals, < https://modelairliner.com/creating-y...custom-decals/ >

Who made this display stand? It’s definitely not a GJ’s as the hole for it is in the wrong place.

Don't know, but I doubt it was Mr. Peter himself.

Lovely job on that one.
Used to share the sky a lot with them when I did a lot of flying in Cornwall.
Excellent model.
