Default Air France Concorde Fleet

Getting bored so bought 7 cheap Socatec 1/400 Concordes off chinese ebay sellers. As expected most came broken but at about £10 each...
This mould is woeful compared to the previous Gemini/Socatec version, but makes it ideal to fleet build. Bit of re-decalling reggies and....

So presenting all Air France "Bars" Concordes F-BTSC, F-BVFA, F-BVFB, F-BVFC, F-BVFD, F-BTSD and F-BVFF

I got a couple of these a while ago, both had broken undercarriage, not flagged up in the eBay listing. But as you say, only £10 or say and the tooling isn't terrible.

I haven't done what you did, but several years ago, I did chase up all the Gemini Jets British Airways Chatham Dockyard livery Concorde's, including the Corgi badged twin set and Harrods exclusive, which when added to the regular releases, makes for a full set of G-BOAA to G-BOAG.

Only missing D on the BA fleet.

missed out on a "D" the other day. Too much money. I will patiently wait.
It was more of a diversion from the 1/200 fleet. Need about three more Negus and good to go. (Hoping BBDG gets re-released)
Also picked up the 1/400 Dragon Pre-pro Concordes and the Air France Shark. Not bothered with all the others, Braniff etc.

I bought the F-BVFD from socatec aero in 1/400 scale, but in another livery as the F-BVFA had visited Frankfurt airport in that livery. The AF title is shorter, a larger AF logo between cockpit and first entrance and a two letter reg instead of the EU-star circle at the vert stabilizer is there.

Nice pics!

i've got a few concordes, BOAC, 6 British and 2 Air France in different liveries.

are the 1/400 Dragon Pre-pro Concordes worth getting?

I wonder if Herpa/Gemini would release this?

And this would make an interesting set. The liveries for the original orders.

Very nice collection there Aviaction! I'm patiently looking for F-BVFC/D to complete my collection. According to DiMA, GJ special did them as a special release for 'Charlie Bravo'. To date, I have never seen them on Ebay.
