Default Oxford Diecast 1/72 DH84 EI-ABI "Iolar"

Just arrived Oxford Diecast DH84 Dragon in Aer Lingus scheme "Iolar" operated by Irish Historic Flight.
Lovely model as usual from Oxford. And IMO puts other manufacturers to shame that you get a good quality model in a nice presentation box for about 30 quid. Corgi take note.....

I have been doing research work for Oxford Diecast for some time and all their Dragon Rapides, Dragons and Doves/Devons were initiated by me. We have several more Dragon Rapides and Dragons in the pipeline, but production has to be paced based on sales of already made models, so they will not appear until next year at least. The Aer Lingus Dragon was a no-brainer as it's currently airworthy and regularly appears in the UK. Apart from that, I've flown in it!

A very nice model. Amazing quality. Any chance of a Heron someday?

Very nice model.

I had the very good fortune to fly aboard a Dragon Rapide back in 1982.

I still have in my collection the gift I received after the flight. This link to my site tells the story.

I would love to get a custom model made of the Lady Faye someday.
