1/200 Vickers Vimy. G-EAOU
This Vickers Vimy, G-EAOU (affectionately known as "God 'Elp All Of Us"), was flown by the brothers Ross and Keith Smith, together with mechanics Jim Bennett and Wally Shiers, to victory in the 1919 England to Australia Air Race. In the process, they became the first people ever to fly from England to Australia. Built as a Vickers F.B.27A Vimy IV for the RAF, serial number F8630, it was too late to see service in the Great War. However, Vickers were persuaded to enter it in the England-Australia Air Race and converted it with extra fuel tankage. The aircraft operated to a maximum weight of 13,000 lb (5,896 kg) and was powered by two Rolls Royce Eagle VIII engines of 360 hp each. It was said that the starboard radiator had already crossed the Atlantic on Alcock and Brown's famous flight!
Nice model for 1:200 I built one of these in my childhood I think it was an Airfix. Despite the lack of wires the detailed wings look amazing
The 1/72 kit was by FROG. Initially issued as Alcock & Brown's famous trans-atlantic flight aircraft. The mould was subsequently modified to omit the nose wheel to represent a standard RAF bomber. I built and fully rigged it in its latter form and the kit was later reissued by NOVO.
