Roden 1/144 SVC10 kit arrives

Post by Broadwas » Tue Apr 05, 2016 5:58 pm

Just a conformation that the long awaited Roden Super VC10 kit is now selling on ebay. My first few EAA versions are in the post, BOAC examples will be following shortly. I couldn't resist buying a couple of 1/144 ICM Il 62's (Commie copies) to build alongside the VC10's :D

From what others in the USA tell me, some parts for a K3 are included with the EAA kit. Namely the in flight refueling probe and the centre line HDU. But NOT the wing mounted HDU's. I'm told that this is at last a 'proper' 1/44 scale replica of the real thing, time will tell if it's as good as that but we can live in hope.

On ebay they're making around £30.00 or so (from Germany) inc P&P with nothing extra to pay. Hopefully this new kit will end the insane pricing of the Airfix kit. Hannants do not appear to have any stock yet.

I think that they are also in stock at my local shop, which just happens to ship almost everywhere: http://www.aviationmegastore.com/vicker ... art=134751
Looks like the BOAC version sold well, it's showing as temporarily out of stock: http://www.aviationmegastore.com/vicker ... art=134752
