Default AIR CANADA VANGUARD 1/50 scale.

This historic model came to me last year in very poor condition. I recently completed a full restoration including the addition of the two air scoops under the nose.

She looks really good. I flew on one, from Saint John, NB to Montreal as an infant

Very nice model. I also really like its 1/100 scale brother. More my size I'm afraid... or rather my apartment's.

I flew on a BEA one many, many years ago from MLA to LHR. For a seven year old kid, those windows were huge! The plane itself seemed huge too.

Only 44 aircraft were built but I remember how beautiful they looked.
In the 1960s it was difficult to compete with jet powered aircraft.

Very nice model, great job.
Congratulations.

If I remember correctly there were two French operators of used machines. EAS and Intercargo Service, a nice livery on those ones.

Flew on BEA G-APEH LHR-GLA back in 1973. One and only Vanguard flight. I still have the safety card. Cool airplane.

if the two lower photos are what you call "very poor" condition, that means every single one of my 1/50 and larger scale models need full restoration
