Cool 1/100 WESTWAY BOAC 747-100 G-AWNA (at last!)

as you may know I have been wanting one of these to replace my bulky heavy
VERKYUL model I sold. so I finally ordered a new one from westway and sent half deposit. then sods law one popped up on ebay 2 weeks ago and sold for £200. but there were some errors on it, but nice model nonetheless. so model finally arrived today. thus completing my top 3 holy grails of my large scale collection. 747, COMET 1 + COMET4!! so here are the pictures. you will probably note the letters should be slightly over just over pax doors, but doug has done it from artwork + pics he had. was a bright sunny day today, so apologies for all the shadows! this is my 12th large scale BOAC model!!

Hello Robert,

A very important piece in your BOAC collection. You must feel very proud, for this beautiful acquisition, even more so by the persistence you placed on the acquisition of a piece that you always wanted,

An icon! Congratulations and best of luck.

thanks Robert and Pinto. after waiting for a long while for one to come up, decided to get my first brand new one. but well worth it!!!! whether I will add anymore or not I don't know yet.

my other top 2 models. 1/72 COMET 1 + COMET 4. but all my models are great.









And rest of models on flickr!

probably the rarest or unique model of them all is this 1/100 VICKERS VC-7/V100. Like a stretched COMET 1. total one off I believe.

thanks neil. would love to get one of each airframe flown at some stage. from late 40s/50s onwards. so would need VISCOUNT, SUPER VC 10, ARGONAUT, HERMES, at least. can get first 2 done for around £200 each, but not seen any frames for other 2 anywhere yet.
