Default 1/50 F27 Friendship

My latest addition which arrived yesterday. Made by Executive Display Models London, this masterpiece is in 1/50 scale. The livery is Farner Airtransport. I have a special attachment to the F27, having had such a lot to do with them, back in the 1980s at Air UK. In the 90s, Farner was a frequent visitor to the airport where I was working.

I'm so pleased to at last have a model of the Friendship. It's a lovely design, and as with all the original British made Executive Display Models, she's a beauty. I have to give a mention of robertjohn, who's photos showed her on one of the dealers tables at the recent Kempton show, cheers Robert. That same dealer gave me a great deal on the price of the model too.

Anyway, here she is, hope you like her as much as I do.

Neil.

Always nice to see such a nice and Switzerland related model. I didn't knew this company.

I also love models with inscriptions .... it makes them unique.

MSR thats a great looking model! As you love the F27 , you should get the huge metal 1/24 F27 on aviationmodels.

I agree it's a lovely model, but I don't have the hangar space.
