Default Sky Classics BRITISH CALEDONIAN VC 10 G-ARTA

1/200 SKY CLASSICS BRITISH CALEDONIAN VC 10. done by ARD from the old skyline mould. unique feature of these old white metal models is they are held together by one or two screws underneath!

Did you just pick that up on Ebay for £95? if it is that one, I had been watching it for the last couple of weeks when I finally went to buy it it had ended, my loss. It's better than the JCwings version, more realistic, I don't know what possessed JCwings to produce there model with a 'metalic gold' cheat-line.

Yes I compared the price at ARD and it was definitely one I want, but I prioritised others first and when I finally went to 'click' on it , it had ended. Just goes to show nothing comes to he who waits. I was hoping Gemini may borrow the mould again and do this with a different Reg and a BA one.

Great find! I have the Skyline version, but the printing and details on the newer version are much improved. It’s a shame that the 1:1 version didn’t survive a positioning flight from LHR to LGW.

thanks john. don't collect much 200 scale these days. but this was too good to turn down.


WARDAIR. I believe GEMINI did do 1 VC 10. but I think they used the JC mould.

managed to find a couple of old pics of an old b/cal vc 10 i used to have. earlier/later livery? but can't remember if it was a SKYLINE or MAM(METAL AIRCRAFT MODELS) model. perhaps john can confirm, and if he bought this off me when i sold it?
