How dose the visor part fit on the nose? Like is it held only anyway or dose just sit there.

Thank you, these pictures are the ones we need to make our own judgement.

Very nice model, nicely detailed but I am not sure that the droop nose and the separate visor were a good initiative.

The gap between the visor, nose / fuselage is too important.

Just my opinion.

It just sits in two wee holes at either said. Not held in and very loose. Iv managed to lose it twice so far So it now lives in the box with the gear up covers

I agree, its a great model. Stunning details. Part of me also agrees with the nose/fueslage gap and the other parts thinks theyve done an good job. What really annoys me is the missing spray guard on the nose wheel

I totally agree to this statement. The gap between the nose and the fuselage is a bit too big in my opinion. A fine plastic nose (or even a better tooled metal nose) with a smaller gap would have made a perfect model. So it's just 8 out of 10.

Smaller gap only can be done on all plastic models because minimum polishing required, all diecast manufacturers have to deal with this.

When the nose is 'up', it snaps backward to close the gap and doesn't seem too bad.

Still, an unrealistic gap was one of my concerns too when the moveable nose was first proposed. I think the moto aught to be "If you can't do it right, don't do it at all".

I agree, 8 out of 10.

Firstly, thank you very much for excellent model review with high resolution quality detailed photos. I would like to add that the gear up option is very nice change to the GJ/JC mould and I love the first photo you took of the model in flight. (It's what the Concorde is all about with those graceful lines). My first JC Concorde, a Air France F-BDST Pepsi did not have gear up options (just like all previous manufactures) and had a longer needle probe at the nose looks like this is now cropped with clippers.

It has two holes to lock it into position. See my last photo above

There is another Concorde, surprisingly it has been forgotten.
The Historic model made from aluminium alloy, it was available some twenty years ago.
I also have the BA Landor …
The nose was rather good.

does anyone know what are the gray plastic rods in the pack?

For operation of the reversers. They are so fragile.

Ok, I will have a crack on advise. Theses rods are in the landing gear pack correct? Which may indicates they are used for the landing gear up or down options

Thank's to you Aussiejets and Tonka
yes I can see now there is a hole in the landing gear parts for the close position. You can move it out from the model without a scratch on the paint.
To move the reversers with them is also a good opportunity.
cheers
Wolfgang
