It takes a measure of skill to do justice to a plastic model kit, and this one looks pretty good. Here we have a 1/72nd scale model kit by Frog (which stands for Flies Right Off the Ground) and the subject is a BUA Herald.
A few executive Heralds were operated, but in the main the Heralds came into BUA service mainly through the aquisition of Jersey Airlines in 1962 and they stayed in BUA / BUIA service until the transition to BIA in July 1970. This aircraft, G-APWI, was one of the Jersey Airlines' Heralds.
