SUD Aviation Caravelle Air France VEB Plasticart


Recommended Posts

A blast from the past.

The very rare Plasticart Caravelle in approx. 1/100.

Probably first released in the early 1960s,it is very simplistic in detail.

But as I have a soft spot for those Plasticart kits,I have almost all their airliners in my collection,I had to add this as well.

 

As with all my Plasticart builds,I try to stick as close as possible to the kit design and usually do not change much or anything at all to keep their classic character.

The only thing I added are the engine exhausts,because the plastic around there was rather brittle and resulted in not really round outlets.

The rest is as it comes from the box,including the decals.

What always amazes me with those kits,is the fact that almost all decals are still in good and usable condition.

I had only one kit so far where the decals had been beyond salvation.

The fit is ok for its age with surprisingly little use of putty required.

 

Thanks for looking

Alex

Really captures the look of the real thing, in my opinion!  VEB Plastikart got most of the shape right, including the cockpit outline, but you did the rest.  Will you build a 1/100 Trident next so all of us can see an equally smashing job?

Thank you very much.

I built the Trident many years ago in BEA livery.
