I have been thinking about doing either a FF or RC model of this aircraft for a while.
As far as I am aware two were brought into South Africa and used to give joy rides in an around Muizenberg.

On another note, in the then Southern Rhodesia (early 1920's) I have an old black and white photograph of the front of an Avro 504 named Rhodesia. Any ideas as to her colours and registration?

Doesn't mention a registration .. but these scans from "In Southern Skies by J.W. Illsley"

Thank-you. Yes, the 504 is another subject I am busy researching. I have a number of photographs some of which I do not trust as it clearly shows registration numbers which are not visible in any of the photographs from In Southern Skies. Which reminds me, wasn't there talk about a second volume?
