One of my favorite Jet aircraft. When I was a kid in the late '60s and early '70s, we saw them daily as we played baseball in our yard. We lived 3 miles from O' Hare airport in Chicago. Those engines sure made a lot of smoke!

I like the way they made the canopy, all manufacturers should do that!  And the fact that there are no windows  have to be masked off!

They are showing as £27.57 (price converted) on their site, I wonder how much these will cost when they reach the shops on these shores?

Also out there for this kit  are decals for Elvis' Lisa Marie from www.atlantic-models.com if they are still around. ( Can't check as work blocks their site)

I've always loved the look of the Delta Convair 880. This one is really tempting me!
