Thanks, it was a lot easier to build than I expected as every MACH2 kit is supposed to be 'unbuildable'. It's a scheme I've wanted to do for years.

A magnificent build of what can be a challenging kit. Very eye catching colour scheme too.

I used to watch this in the circuit, must have taken 5 mins to get round.

Very nice!  Now where do you put it? It's a big model!

Thoroughly impressed, by the size and the ultra smooth finish!

 

Did I say that I was impressed?

 

Kind regards,

Magic ! Well done . Loved the whistling wotsits at Brize with 115 Sqn around 1976 .

Stunning !! I've got a crun-n-custard one to build, but wish I'd gone for something with a cheat line like yours. The homemade decals look superb.

I'll always remember the one at Halton airfield that the sooties got to play with while we marshalled JPs around :).

Excellent work, well done.

Cheers

This can't be a Mach 2 kit- it actually looks like the real airplane pictured on the box! I am impressed; I think this is one of the very nicest finished Mach 2 kits I can remember seeing! The Whistling T was a handsome (I think so, anyway!) and capable old hauler, and you have done her justice. Well done! Must weigh a kilo or so, though!:clap2:

Superb build - bet that takes up a bit of room in a display cabinet.

Straight from the box/Mach 2 seems like some sort of oxymoron...Lovely job

I was expecting it to be a difficult build and whilst it didn't exactly fall together the amount of work needed wasn't to bad. It does need a lot of weight up front to get it to sit properly.

I only saw it once at a Middle Wallop air show in the 80s, shame it ended up as it did.

Let me know if you want me to send you the decal artwork to print your own.

I found the kit cheatlines weren't right so re-drew them whilst doing the rest of the artwork so you're probably better off with the camo version. I went to a Halton open day in the mid-80s and there were several Argosies and loads of JPs - never managed to go back though.

It is big but hopefully I can minimise it's footprint by getting some smaller models under the wings......

Great looking build- brings back good memories- My final board at Cosford before I was let loose on the rest of the RAF was an ILS channel select snag on an Argosy, 🙂

Brilliant build Steve. I've just finished Mach2's Britannia, or rather it's just finished me. You almost got a call as the kit comes without any cheat lines, but I had some Magna ones in the box. See you at Telford.

Stunning work! I remember this aircraft coming into Woodford once, very exciting to see something so different. 

 

I bought this kit to make as this very same one, but after finding the civil cargo version relatively cheap I then realised the military ones have that hump over the cargo door, so I sold it. Never been able to find one for under £40 again since!
