that I build was a Heller 1:72 scale no.80283. The model was very small and
a lot of fine work needed to be done. The model itself had nice detail and
all parts fitted perfect.
The Vampire was the very first jet in the SAAF.
The first model they orders was the FB Mk5. The first ten arrived in SA is
1950. That same year they all were send to No.1 Squadron (Waterkloof). Their
serial numbers were 201-210.
