Looks very nice, only weird thing to me is that they choose the same registration as the old model.

And they used the same engines - which are not zp to todays standards.

I think they captured the elegant lines of the VC10 well with this model. I just wished they would retool the toy like clunky wing root, particularly when you see what up to date modelling can do and remove the metal eyelet engine intakes and it would be one to have.

I think thisis an issue with model producers. we get a VC10, TU134 and others. But only handful of schemes are released, then nothing.

with VC10 no Ghana, East African, Malawi along with a redux of the abysmal Gulf Air 1st release, with sloping windows, and I doubt we will ever see them.


I'll have to stick with my yelowed East African HAM version

They could reissue the British Caledonian version, this time without the metalic gold paint and use the correct shade of yellow. Did BCal ever use metalic Gold?

No, but Corgi did on their Caledonian Britannia

It must be a lost in translation thing?

I have the SKY Classics version of the British Caledonion VC-10, better on the livery shade, but more expensive.

Just got an email saying the model was no longer available? Did anyone get this at all? Not a lot has got me excited diecast wise this last 12 months, but this model did.

Just got an update from ARD and they said they've just got them in and the previous email was an error. So they're on their way!

Nice to hear that this was a mistake, as my wife pre-ordered this model for me for Valentine's day.

I still do not understand why JC did not put different wheels on the undercarriage.
