Default BOAC Super VC 10 orginal design model

When I was a boy I had a picture book of airliners with a large picture of a BOAC Super VC 10. I found the original in this Vickers ad from the early 60s before the real plane had flown.
I was delighted when at a Heathrow Fair Paul Benn showed me a plain grey model of just this version. He agreed to paint it up for me as the plane in the ad.
On 8 May at another Heathrow Fair he delivered the model to me. As it was all safely packed up for carrying home, I did not show it at the Fair but thought you would like to see Paul's pictures of the model. It is 1/72 scale so quite impressive. The stand is not shown.

Congratulations, it is a beautiful model!!

Didn't know the VC-10 was considered with tip-tanks. Were any prototypes actually fitted with them?

Ralph, that's an absolute cracker! You must be very pleased, it looks stunning.
I have a 1/72 Westway Standard VC10. Almost as good looking as the Il62!
