AVRO 621 Tutor – Introduction

After having seen the AVRO Tutor at the Shuttleworth Collection at Old Warden in the UK, I just had to model this great-looking, great-flying aircraft.

The AVRO Tutor was designed in the 1920’s as a replacement for the, now aging, AVRO 504K WWI trainer. It was constructed of welded steel tubes and doped linen covering. The AVRO was available with various engine installations, with and without the Townsend engine ring.

The AVRO was used in Denmark, but I think I will paint it in the UK livery. You just CAN get too many silver-doped aircraft. The AVRO Tutor in the Shuttleworth Collection is the only of its kind left in the world.

AVRO 621 Tutor – 3-View

The 3-view for this aircraft is fairly detailed, and comes from a 1940’s Swedish model airplane book. It was drawn by Karlstrom Tage Larsen and is quite detailed. Together with the photos I took at Old Warden, I should be ready to go.

    Denne tegning er ikke tegnet af Karlström! Det er danske Tage Larsen der har tegnet den, blandt andet bragt i bladet “Vi Flyver”.
