English Electric at Farnborough 1966 - not what you think

Recommended Posts

Here is the 1/24th scale English Electric Thunderbird Mk2 by KFS (Kit Form Services). I purchased this at last years SMW Telford show and had this idea to be slightly different in presentation being shown at Farnborough 1966 as an exhibit. This is a first for me as I’m normally an Aircraft or Helicopter builder. The kit itself is resin and 114 bits of etch and I used it all, didn’t skip a bit honest. Even in this scale my eyes were on sticks!. The instructions are ok but there is no colour call out on what bit gets painted in what, but some research helped. The advertising sign is a scaled down actual advert and printed off. The rope fence is matchsticks and metal weights for the base. Anyway the photo’s which are not in the best light, but hey ho:

I spoke with the KFS chap at Telford and a Bloodhound is being done now for release in 2020. It will be 25% bigger in this scale.

 

Thanks everybody for your comments. Now back to aircraft....

Excellent!  I was looking at a real one at Cosford on Saturday and there is most of one standing as gate guardian at the old Westcott aerodrome (former Rocket Research Establishment) north of Aylesbury.
