Airfix 1/144 Vickers Vanguard

Postby Migrant » Fri Sep 27, 2019 9:31 am

From the recent re-release which had nice BEA decals, though the plastic was still the same. It was re-scribed and I replaced all the windows with clear resin, plus added some cockpit detail– none of which can be seen of course. I put loads of nose-weight in but it still wasn't enough, hence the rear passenger steps acting as a tail-prop. I've since replaced the kit steps with a set of more accurate 3D-printed stairs (last pic).

Damn straight!! Book me a flight. 8-)


So many aspects I could touch on..... we have the open doors.... hand rails in 1/144.... interior work... the windscreen area; I can see inside, makes me want to be closer. The props and engine work with the paneling and stuff..... man. I could keep listing! I'll just say I dig it!! 8-) 8-)
