1/72 Dragon Saunders Roe SR A/1 Jet Flying Boat
Vacuform Model Kit, Box Condition: Sealed
SR A/1 was a prototype high-performance jet seaplane fighter for the RAF. The famous flying boat maker, Saunders Roe, saw that with the new jet engine they could overcome the drag penalties of floats - hence a fighter with a flying boat hull. The first flight was 1947 and the aircraft had a maximum speed of 512 MPH with a range of 1200 miles - very good performance for the day. But the success of the aircraft carrier had sealed the fate of the A/1 and the project was limited to three prototypes. Still factory sealed.
