Oxford Diecast History of Flight 72DR015
de Havilland Dominie Diecast Model
USAAF 27th ATG, X7454 Wee Wullie

1:72 Scale   Length   Width
de Havilland Dominie   5.75"   8"

This 1:72 scale model is a replica of the British built De Havilland DH89 Dragon Rapide on display at the National Museum of the USAAF, located on the Wright Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio. In military circles the Dragon Rapide went under the name Dominie. Nicknamed "Wee Wullie", our aircraft in real life was registered as N2290, with a Construction No. 6794. Its flight code number X7454 is printed along both sides of the fuselage, alongside the American Star. Decorated simply in dull green with grey underside, the refurbished Dragon Rapide represents the colours of the USAAF 8th Air Force as flown by the 27th Air Transport Group in 1942. Note a special detail on our model - the addition of an air speed windmill on the upper left wing. More than 530 Dominies were produced for the Royal Air Force and used in communications, transport and training roles. Six were turned over to the USAAF's Eighth Air Force between 1942 and 1944. They were used primarily by the 27th Transport Group. As far as is known, all Dominies flown by Americans carried RAF serial numbers and no USAAF serial numbers were assigned.
