VC10 Retirement Tribute Polo Shirt

Post by ACLVC10 »

Hi Fellow forum members

I was thinking of getting a polo shirt produced to marked the old girls final retirement, what do all you guys think and does anyone have any ideas on designs as im no good with things like that :)

Message me if your up for the challenge?

All profit i would say could go to keeping one of the old girls in preservation.....

Regards

I have no idea how copywrite works but I borrowed these images from the Wikipedia page for the VC-10 and then used an online company where you can create custom polo shirts.

I would quite like a grey coloured shirt with the black silhouette.

Hi, Shirt design looks great, think we will have to collectively come up with a definate design and then set the ball rolling......

What do you think guys?

Hi Guys and Girls

The response I have had so far isn't the greatest, I'm 100% in on this idea and other people are but there isn't enough people behind to make it worthwhile!

Once I know I have a decent crowd behind this idea I will then get some designs in place, in the mean time you guys want to come up with ideas I am all ears.

Please guys, come and support this idea...... Im sure we all want raise some money to keep at least one of the old girls preserved???

Cheers Andy

I'm interested.

I like the design Thumper.

Let's get this rolling.

We could add the name of our group 'VC10der Loving Carers'.

Best regards.

I should just add.

No hyphen please, between VC & 10.

Would be great to add the Vickers Armstong Airfcraft Limited logo, the one that is on the control column centres; when they have not been stolen.

I think whatever design we go for we all have to be in agreement with, personally I think we should keep the shirt simple and not to much advertising etc. Its about the VC10s retirement after all.

Anyway we need to get a good designer on board.

A "Tea" Shirt is a great idea and also showing Vickers spectacle logo too. On that subject perhaps two could accidentally find their way to Brooklands as they are missing two!!

It is a lovely logo, very Art Deco.

Hi Guys

These are all great ideas but I need someone who is artistic, as I'm not, can anyone come with some designs we can all have a look at?

Notice its quite different and looks more authentic compared to the first image? Most people would think that was some kind of tribal tattoo?!

Suggestion then... the Vickers logo across the back at the top of the shirt. Below that... what?
