A Concorde Triple Header
« on: November 20, 2021, 08:35:37 AM »
I have just knocked out three Airfix Concordes for a GB -

Airfix 1/144 BAC Aerospatiale Concorde (08666)








Airfix 1/144 BAC Aerospatiale Concorde (BOAC) (05170-3)
It was a 1970s boxing with decals that were shot so I used a set from a 2021 Vintage Classic release. The white plastic of the old kit was a joy to work with.








Airfix 1/144 BAC Aerospatiale Concorde (Air France) (SK700)
This was a 1970s Air France boxing with decals that were shot so I printed my own. As with my BOAC build above, the white plastic of the old kit was a joy to work with.










On the production line at the moment....

Thank you Jeffry.  :smiley:

I have just finished the fourth one:
My build of the Airfix 1/144 BAC Aerospatiale Concorde (A05170V) as the BAC Prototype G-BSST.

What a foursome.  Clean-n-sleek.  Finish sheen is ideal.   :smiley:
Look faster than they are.

Awesome builds Dave.  Such a beautiful design. A design with an equivalence of both form and function.

Do you happen to have just one more kit? It would be cool to see an Air Canada version. Registration would be CF-SST. ;D

Work in progress ::

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

Thanks everybody.  :smiley:

I have four more Concordes (Production versions) in my stash but I won't be building those for a quite a while. What schemes I use on them will remain a secret - for now.  :-X  ;)
