Actually their prices are very reasonable. And how good do those Vickies look!

I've just ordered a 1/100 DC-8 from them, made to order for 150 Quid delivered. Another big company i know quoted $600 for the same job! :shock:

Sorry to mention the DC-8 here! Great aircraft though, and they sold 556 of them! OK, enough...!

How much do you reckon a Vc10 would set me back?

Similar amount i guess for a 1/100 scale. Finished in any config/scheme.

No connection with the company BTW! Just my opinion after dealing with them. Friendly bunch.

I can vouch for the quality... I have 3 of their models. they were made to order, the JP5 I went solo in, the Jetstream I got my wings in and the Nimrod I went to Gulf War I in... all fantastic models...

I love the model of the 10 Squadron XV104. That's the colour scheme I remember from my childhood.

Hmmm, more camera gear or a nice model? Christmas isn't far away........ :)

Wow indeed. Now for that lottery win so I can have them all! :-)////)

Gold speedbird looks great but I love the 101sqdn trailing lines, that looks the business!

If anyone is interested in one of their models, I have a C1 (not a C1K!) in the old white and blue 10 Sqn scheme that I am happy to sell. I got it direct from them off eBay which is how I first came to find them. I wanted a VC10 model and there were few about then... now I am more interested in models of ones I have flown, and I never flew a C1 in that colour scheme.

It is at my folks house at the moment, but will get a pic when I can if anyone is interested... it'll be cheaper than a new one thats for sure LOL

I requested 2 Bristol Britannias from them in the livery
of Redcoat Air Cargo (G-BRAC) and its TV liveried REDAIR
Version, both stunning models and would rate highly Nice
Models.
Cheers
