A silver metal RAF monoplane with blue, white, and red tail colours and wing roundels, made by Britains Ltd. from 1937, and sold as Aircraft Series set number 433.

The plane came with a box whose base converted into a cardboard model aircraft hangar.


The plane has a cast (lead?) body, curved sheet-metal wings and white rubber wheels. The radial engine block just behind the propeller has a very pronounced shape, and is a separate casting.


This is the later updated version of number 433, which came out in 1937, and is essentially a single-wing version of the 1937 Britains biplane model, number 1521.
