Default Skyclassics BEA Bristol 170

Just arrived a minty 1/200 Skyclassics BEA Bristol 170
(Apologies If I outbid you on this)


Note this is the short nose Bristol 170 mk21e as opposed to the longer 170 mk32.
Also just found it was involved in a crash in 1958. "Winter Hill Air Disaster".


Nice if someone could do it in 1/400

That’s a very nice little model, looks very accurate too. As a young kid on a family holiday, I flew on a Mk32 of Channel Air Bridge. We used to see them in and out of Southend most days. I’ve got the Air Britain book on the Bristol Freighter (worth every penny) There’s plenty in it on the Mk31 and the all passenger Wayfarer version. A fascinating aircraft.

A 1/400 version of any Bristol 170 variant would be more than welcome.

Great model, great find and in excellent condition you lucky ebay winner.

Anything starting with a "A" on the British register G-A in the rego is very old school so well done on catching this one
