1:44 and it's still 43cm long. A big bird wasn't it.
Yes but still tiny next too the 747 and the new A 380 if it was still around.

Definitely one of, if not the, most interesting and purely awesome airliners ever built. Look forward to seeing your Concorde Ian

Made a start on this one, so far the fits not bad, but there's a little damage to the front. Not much of a problem should be sorted with a little plasticard. Weight fitted and front window masked.

Got the two halves put together and it doesn't look too bad.

But on closer inspection there's a few injector pin marks and sink marks to sort out.

Doing my usual catch up rounds Ian. Lovely work so far. Was there an option to lower the high speed windshield nose cone to expose the flight deck windshield?

Yes you could have Joe, but the windscreen is the wrong shape. So rather than trying to fix it I just built it up.

Ok I've been playing with the PE on this one. Some very fiddly work.

Si.
Good start and I am glad you didn't go for the 1\72 Concorde as some reviews rate it naff
I heard this too, as I was looking into it. Not a wingy fan as me and them hate each other, but the Concord always struck a cord with me.
