Developed from the Beagle Pup, the Bulldog is a two-seat side-by-side training aircraft. The prototype first flew in May 1969. Before any production aircraft were built, Beagle Aircraft ceased trading and the production rights for the aircraft were taken over by Scottish Aviation. The largest customer was the Royal Air Force, which placed an order for 130 in 1972, entering service as the Bulldog T.1 in 1975.
It was used by the Royal Air Force as a basic trainer, in particular as the standard aircraft of the University Air Squadrons and, later, Air Experience Flights, providing flying training. The aircraft was also used by the Royal Navy for Elementary Flying Training (EFT) at RAF Topcliffe. The RAF sold off its remaining Bulldog trainers in 2001 - they were replaced by the Grob Tutor.
The aircraft modelled here wears its typical, attractive RAF red and white trainer livery, with blue identification stripe on the rear fuselage. It comes complete with a display stand in a special presentation box.
