  1. Already I'm wondering if I've bitten off more than I can chew, but more on that later! I'm in with the Valom Vickers Viking C.2 (Royal Flight), already I think three V's in an alteration is worth something. It comes in a proper box with a lift off lid and is so solid no cat will be able to resist sitting in it! So, let's get the bits and bobs out and make room for the cat... It's not just the cat that's happy; there's a little sheet of etched brass that's got the carpet monster happy as well! And a spare fuselage (could be handy for the proposal) Decals and instructions A choice of VL233 for Queen's flight (1956) or VL247 King's flight (1947). This is going to be easy isn't it? VL233, biff bash boff proper job and off to the pub before you can say Platinum Jubilee! Ah yes though, I did say I wondered if I'd bitten off more than I can chew. Good job I'm not doing VL233 for the king isn't it? Because the decal options are wrong. Decal 16 is actually a common for both as an instrument panel. Only decal 8 for Queen's Flight is provided. And this matters because tucked away in an unused part of my memory is that a 'queens' crown and 'king's one are different. Google agrees, basically a Kings one goes up and a Queens has a 'dimple' plus the decal is for EIIR. Obviously none of this is a problem because this is all about the Queen's flight option and its a lovely looking decal for that. No, the real problem is VL233- I can't find the clinching photo of Queenie-love with it, only of VL 247, and that's only of the tail so I don't know what the markings should be. What I need is a gallant knight of the realm to confirm that VL233 was used by HM and I'm back in the clear.. ...Otherwise, I'm in deep about markings We'll worry about bare metal finish later!!!
