  1. So my plan to build an SA-10 has been postponed due to the late delivery of the kit, so as an alternative I offer......... In the late 1960s, at the end of his parents' overseas tour, a very young Roland P was flown from Africa to the UK on board an East African Airways Super VC10. I still remember peering out of the large cockpit side windows and looking down on the Pyramids and also seeing my first Concorde when we landed in Rome. So my new plan is to build one of my Roden EAA Super VC10s for the GB. However, many years later, a somewhat older Roland ended up flying VC10s with 101 Sqn at RAF Brize Norton, which included all of the ex-EAA Super VC10s which were now known as VC10 K3s in RAF service. If time permits (highly unlikely given my propensity for starting and then missing the finish line in GBs) I plan to do the same aircraft in 101 Sqn colours. Now all I need to do is work out what photo hosting website to use and how to embed pictures; it all used to be so easy before Photobucket went all mercenary on us!!
  2. Jambo ! Just arrived from Nairobi this afternoon It's Roden's Super VC-10 but I didn't want to risk using the kit's decals, so I used Classic Airlines decals (CA144-385) instead. (I'm embarrassed to say that it's the first time I've actually tried Nick's decals, but sure won't be the last !) Standard 4 x 4 walkaround : and here it is with a neighbour from Ethiopia Thanks for taking the time to have a look. Time to head back to Africa for my next build. Regards mike
  3. Roden have released two gorgeous kits of the Vickers Super VC10 in 1/144 scale. This iconic aircraft is available in two different versions, with either the distinctive BOAC livery or East African livery.
