1/72 Palouste Mk.101/100 – Jet Air Starter Trolley and Airborne Pod (for Gannet, Scimitar, SeaWixen

The Palouste starter was used for starting up the aircraft jet engines by means of high pressure and high velocity air generated by a small turbine located inside the trolley or pod. The turbine was housed inside a unique-shaped pod resembling a drop fuel tank. No wonder the Palouste could also be airborne, carried on underwing pylons, thus enabling service of RAF, Armée de l’Air and US Navy warplanes from auxiliary, ill equipped airfields. A set of detachable wheels was used to facilitate moving the starter across the field.
