Great looking model Steve. Interesting anti-glare green section below the cockpit windows.

I love the Viscount for its remarkable design. I got to know it as a model, before seeing pictures on internet and survivors in musea, and remember how suprised I was. The cockpit in the form of a bulge on the nose, as if they had forgotten to design it in the first place. The strange configuration of the side window of the cockpit. The strange round doors. The large oval passenger windows. I was stunned to learn that it was the first turboprop in serial production, setting new standards for comfort, speed and reliability, And that it sold in large numbers, flying successfully on all continents. It belongs in every historical collection.
