When I was a student in London in the late eighties, my digs in Battersea shook every evening at 6pm to the sound of Concorde coming over inbound for Heathrow after a supersonic dash across the Atlantic. It's long been one of my favourite aircraft, and the Landor scheme is by far the classiest livery it ever wore, so it was about time I built one. I bought the kit from a fellow Britmodeller, and have been working on it off and on for the last couple of months. I was at a loss which airframe to model, when it struck me that the last two letters of the registration were my late girlfriend's initials. Those who saw my Marauder recently will know why I chose Alpha Golf as the airframe to model. Also, it was the last one to travel supersonic over the Atlantic in 2003, and is the subject of the only known photograph of a Concorde actually supersonic, taken from a Tornado at Mach 2. It looks a bit like this: Here she is on the ground though, giving us a pirouette: Before heading out to the active for another deafening takeoff: Heading out to do what she does best: It's not a bad kit overall, a bit chunky in places and the wing fit isn't brilliant, and whoever designed the undercarriage should be shot, but it's Concorde enough for me: Hope you like it, Dean
