  3. This is my completed Gene Hooker Vacform 1/72 Vickers Vanguard, in BEA livery G-APEP, which has taken me a while to finish, and is the only model I have fully completed this year in 2014, I hope you like Build thread http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234924057-172-vickers-vanguard/
  4. As promised, to support @Rabbit Leader's inspirational GB, here is my entry - an Airfix 'Red Stripe' boxing of the Vickers Vangaurd. This aircraft beat me to it in 1959 as it first flew in January of that year whereas I didn't appear until September - I'm sure it had most of it's 'wrinkles' sorted out by then. OK, I'll admit it - it's just another excuse to build an ancient Airfix kit but another one I didn't do as a kid so a bit of catching up going on! The usual exciting box art... Here are the parts and they include two 'poppers' for the decals over the windows
  5. Having a soft spot for all things Postwar Vickers aircraft, I thought I would try my hand at this Vacform model produced by Gene Hooker of USA, I think originally the moulds may of come from a Travel Agents desk model as the kit is not supplied with any props or wheels, but looking at the plans I have it looks quite accurate. This shall be a challenge as I intend to have the passenger doors open with scratch built steps, I shall be constructing the front part of the engines and making resin moulds from these, also the Aeroclub props are from the Britannia which will be modified, all the window
  6. I finished it! Dog of a kit, but very satisfying to complete such a beautiful aircraft. I made this as a father's ay gift for my dad. I wanted to make it in flying jack (my favourite BEA livery) but it turns out my dad hated it! (though it clearly looked better on the Trident) Some of my earliest memories are of us going round the Vanguard at Brooklands. Stand arrived a week after this was completed too thanks to Humbrol digging through their warehouse. They don't make them like this anymore!
  7. This is the newly-boxed kit - same 60s tooling but with new box art and decals. I suspect the moulds have been cleaned up a bit though as the parts fit very well on the whole and the styrene was nice and shiny... I re-scribed it, replaced the windows with clear resin and added a few details here and there.
  8. Hi All, I'm working on the re-released Airfix Vanguard (144) in the BEA red square scheme. Im conscious how those plastic strip windows (which I think it comes with) always look a bit cack. Can anyone offer ideas of how to fill in windows a different way? I'd like it to look as pro as possible, as it's going to be a father's day gift. Ideas welcome. Chris
  9. Howdy all, A bit later than I had hoped but the 1/144th scale TCA Vanguard decals are now available to order. I'm also preparing a set of masks to go with the decals, they should be ready this week. Cheers, Andy
  10. Vickers Vanguard, pics thanks to Frank.
  11. Blimey its big, even in 1/350th. Not quite as nice a mould as the Hobbyboss Astute or the Airfix Traf, but makes an excellent comparison. As supplied in the box, it is missing a few key details (like flank arrays), but I resisted the impulse to try to add them as scratching in this scale is beyond me. Oh and I had what was in effect an ND of a Trident D5, which the carpet monster now has (hence the empty port launch tube ). FredT
  12. A bit of a rarity this one, I've hardly ever seen any built up examples. I bought a couple of these kits back in 1994, the last time it was released by Airfix, with the intention of building one in BEA red square and another in Air Canada. Roll on nearly 20 years, and at last I discover a set of Air Canada Vanguard decals on Two Six's website. Air Canada (TCA as it was at the time) ordered a total of 23 Vanguards and started scheduled services with them in February 1961. There were teething troubles with it as might be expected with a combination of new airfame and new engines, but it settle
