That's a cool formation. Red Arrows could learn a thing from them :D 


Pity they were never able to get all five 707s in the air at the same time but the photos of four with the two Vulcan prototypes is still impressive.

Quite a collection this will be when done :)


I've wanted to do all five for a very long time so every step closer is very satisfying. Just means I'll have to do the Vulcan prototype soon to go with them.

They're looking great!

Thanks Mike.


I've not had much time on these due to work getting in the way, but have managed to get the paint on tonight.


The first 707




707A with the Vulcan style cranked wing leading edge


707A - the paint is still wet!


707C two seater


I'll leave these overnight for the paint to harden off and remove the masking tomorrow.

Thanks for the encouragement.




The orange one is sitting in the naughty corner being kept warm while the second coat of paint dries - the first coat took nearly a week so I'm not holding my breath.....


These four have all had a couple of coats of clear gloss ready for the decals and are on their undercarriages. Shouldn't take long to finish them off now and then I'll sort the orange one once I can handle the paintwork.

Hopefully your second coat of orange goes better Steve. In the meantime it's good to see the others enjoying a quick dance - is that an eightsome reel going on or are they round an imaginary maypole?
