  1. Finally we have weather in Switzerland that allows taking pictures on the balcony... This is the 1966 first issue of Airfix's Concorde. Due to its early release,a good 2 years prior to the first flight,the kit is probably more based on early drawings than on the real thing. There are some differences compared to the real prototype. I actually built it OOB,I even planned to use the kits Air France decals,and use some leftover decals for further detailing. Unfortunately the decals were impossible to use,stiff as a board and they broke at the slightest touch once o
  2. After some Revell Concordes I wanted to try the Airfix kit. Compared to Revell's offering,its simpler detailed,no optional nose installation and it has raised panel lines and open cabin windows. But I must admit that I like the Airfix kit more. Revell has its Concorde kit for decades in their catalogue and its really starting to get a bit long in the tooth. Besides the Airfix kit,I also worked on the Revell one simultanously.The Revell kit ended up in the bin in the end as the parts had a terrible fit and the wing seams kept cracking open,no matter what I did. T
  3. Hello all, Sorry everyone if this question has been raised and answered before... I searched but couldn't find anything (user error?!). I'm very much looking forward to receiving a Revell boxing of the infamous 1/72 Concorde for Christmas. How do I know so far in advance? I bought it myself for my wife to wrap for me... but it does mean I get to do a bit of planning before the big day. I make an annual visit to Duxford with some students and rather like the livery of the Concorde there, G-AXDN. My question then, is there a definitive list of ch
  4. Here's my attempt at the 1/72 Revell (Airfix / Heller) Concorde. She's built out of the box except for the addition of a pair of pilots, a tiny bit of scratchbuilding under the visor and the F_DCAL decals, although I only used the window / door decals from the latter. It's an impressively large model once built, with a length of 85cm and a wingspan of 37cm. I definitely wouldn't describe it as an easy build.....here's a link to the build thread, which will hopefully give a flavour of the blood, sweat and tears required to undertake this kit! https://www.bri
  5. Having just enjoyed building the Revell 1/144 Airbus A380 in British Airways livery, I thought I'd stick with the subject of commercial airliners and have a go at this: On opening the box its certainly much bigger than I anticipated, being 86cm, or around 2 feet 10 in old money, long. As I understand it this is the former Airfix/Heller kit reboxed by Revell, and having read other build logs, can be a bit of a pig to build, allegedly with lashings of filler required. Even Revell seem to acknowledge that a modicum of filling may be required as can be seen in their instru
  6. Decided to break out the 1:72 Concorde and have a go at taming the beast. I've Read so many accounts of it being a difficult kit I thought it was time to have a go and see what I thought. I also fancy having a Concorde in the cabinet. I bought an Extratech photoetch sheet a few years back from the Czech Republic (Llona Mullerova). I also bought an transparency mask and a weighted wheel set from Hannants a while back. The story so far... Started the engine bays to be finished later. The instructions say the darker areas are either Hu85 or Hu53 but I'm inclined to think i
  7. This is the very nice Revell kit of the Concorde,that has been around for ages now and it still is available. I built already one and enjoyed it very much. When I came across this decal set from 26,I decided to buy another kit and have a go. British Airways and Singapore Airlines co-operated on the London-Bahrain-Singapore route and thus one of BAs Concordes wore that hybrid scheme. As only BA and Air France operated the Concorde,this scheme is a nice change and addition for my supersonic collection Enjoy
  8. This plane doesn't really need an introduction.. But I'll make one anyway. For those of you who don't know what it is; Have you been living under a rock? The Aerospatiale-BAC Concorde was one of the first and only supersonic passenger airliners to enter service. Its design was unique, graceful and miles ahead of any of its contemporaries and up until now, no airliner has been able to surpass it. The aircraft's economic future was short-lived, though; In the end, only Air France and British Airways ordered it, paid almost entirely for by their respective governments due to low dem
  9. Another awkward kit from Heller... Having built the Revell re-release of Heller's huge 1/72 Concorde,I thought the 1/125 kit would be in the same quality. Boy was I wrong... At first sight it looks like a downscale of their 1/72 kit,but it isn't. Some parts have the same breakdown others are completely new.The landing gear is a joke,and because no display stand is included,I used a Revell stand from a 747 kit. Also the visor looked off,I decided to order a windows set from DRAW decal and use them instead.It improves the look signifficantly. The overall shap
  10. After a longer break ,I am back with a few builds I finished since last november. First to start with the Concorde in the huge 1/72 scale,this was a re-release of the old Heller kit with new decals.The kit itself is unchanged. After reading a few reviews about the kit being not the best in terms of fitting,I hesitated for quite a while to start it and I left it on the shelf. But finally I thought I give it a go and see what I can achieve with it. Well,the issues are there but Revell provides very good instructions which show where the problem areas are. F
  11. Hello mates, This monster of a kit was at the LMS in Lismore NSW for $129.99 not a bargain. I could have got for $105.50 from the LMS in Melbourne, never mind. It has been sitting on a chair looking at me looking at it. Time to build, as if I need another project. I have read that it is not a very good kit, time will tell. Box art. Bits and pieces. Decals. Huge stand that I will
  12. Hi all, my first post here, just wanted to share my in progress BAC/Aerospatiale Concorde, currently at the main paint stage. This is actually my first airliner, having only done fighters up until now in 1/72 scale, but it won't be my last, after this comes a Lockheed L-1011 Tristar, in the same livery. Hopefully at least. Enjoy the photos for now Turns out I haven't worked out to add an attachment yet! I'll keep working on it...
  13. I know,some of you may think "how on earth can he churn out so many models in one week ?" As my stash has grown bigger and bigger,I decided to increase my production rate and work on several airliners at once. It's also more interesting to work on different projects on and off as only on one,at least for me...I have usually 3-4 kits on my bench on which I am working on and off so from time to time 2 airliners roll off production line almost simultaneously. So,here we are,the last of the bunch is also probably the most special one. The Air France Concord
  14. Many years ago when Airfix released the 1/72 scale Concorde the local model group set about a what if concorde group. The plan was to to come up with something regarding the Concorde and what if a company or organisation purchased one of the several Concordes for personal use. This is my dads take on the concorde done in Eddie Stobart markings. The model represented the red, white and green paint design and their famous Stobart logo branded on the tail. This colour scheme was famous on the roads of Britain, and could of been in the skies also. Thanks for looking.
  15. If all goes well with the NATO Lightning my second project will be the military reconnaissance version of the civilian Concorde airfiner as used by the RAF Back story to follow once I've checked a few facts and made up the rest.
  16. Guess what it is? 1/48th BAC/Sud-Aviation Concorde resin kit by HpH in November 2014.

  17. Has anyone built the Testors Concorde? a bit smaller than 1/72. I made two many years ago, restored both, yet to finish decals. They have a very short tail cone, which I noticed after I painted them wondering why they would have short tails. I never saw photo of a short tail cone.
  18. Entry number 7... I should ban myself from eBay Part of the Heller Cadet range released in 1974 and superseded by Revell's 1/288 "Easy Kit". I know it's a bit tongue-in-cheek as the Revell kit is pre-painted and probably has less parts than your average potato. But it does say "Kit" on the box! From my initial inspection it looks to be a nice little kit. Well moulded parts, very fine raised details and a full set of cabin window holes. I was expecting indents or decals to represent them but this means I can use a tiny drop of Krystal Klear and they should look stunning. Compared to t
  19. Hello, I've been looking at the available decal sheets for Concorde and the F-DCAL sheet for the UK prototype caught my eye. Apart from the smaller visor windows on the first two prototypes, are there any other notable difference between these aircraft the production ones? Many thanks! Andrew
  20. No intro needed for this one. I recently build the ICM kit of the Tupelov 144 and just had to do a Concorde to go with it. I had an old Airfix kit in the stash but the decals were yellowed and unusable, so I got a set of 'Chatham Dockyard' marking from Draw decals, as I rather like this clean and simple scheme. Built mostly out of the box apart from boxing in the main wheel wells and improving the undercarriage legs with a bit of detail. I kept the clear parts for the cockpit glazing, but used the decals frm the Draw sheet for the cabin windows. Its not bad for a kit from the late 60's/early
  21. Hi everyone This is my Revell Concorde It has to be said it is one of the worst kits i have ever built. The Airfix Concorde is more enjoyable!!!!!!1 But im pleased with the result. Its a nice little 1/144 kit. I hand painted it for one, ran out of paint in august and havent got any since......... The windows are from RichW. Thanks Everyone
  22. Hi Everyone This is my Revell 1/144 Concorde. It was a pig to build in the fact i broke the wings off once and nose off twice when it tried to fly..... The landing gear where a nightmare as well. Overall i thought it was a rather poor kit, but it does look nice...... The kit is hand painted, theres a few more details to fo, then im done. I have windows on the way from Richw. Thanks Bradley
