Basic training is an essential part of any airforce’s curriculum. Let’s face it, you can’t fly a Mach 2 superfighter if you don’t know your pitch from your yaw, and you think a Dutch Roll is something you eat for dinner! One of the classic aircraft used for such basic flight training was the Percival Provost, which served the RAF through the ’50s and ’60s. Despite its importance, though, there aren’t many kits of the Provost. In fact, I think the only one is the 1/72 Matchbox Provost T.1!
