In ANY scale! Airfix seems like the right people to make it a reality. I've been wanting one for, oh, maybe only 50 years!

Wonder how it would look with a pair of late-model Adours replacing the installed engines?

I think I have a couple of the vac-forms in the remote southern stash, but I wouldn't swear to the number.
