A recent kit release that my distributor failed to mention, and I missed, is the release of the Airfix 1/72 scale Concorde model under the Revell Germany brand, as kit RV4997. While this kit has its challenges to build, especially getting the moving nose cone to operate properly, once completed it is an impressive model of this magnificent aircraft.
The decal sheet was designed by Daco, for a British Airways aircraft. A lot of the extra “details” are provided, including decals for the cockpit instrument panel and flight engineer’s panels.
There are a number of excellent “build” articles for this (or the Airfix, or Heller) kit on the BritModeller web site, here are links to a couple of them:
There are a few optional extras available for this kit.
DRAW Decal produces a British Airways sheet (DW72-CONC-001) and a “details” sheet (DW72-CONC-002). TwoSix produces a sheet (TS72-016) for the Singapore Airlines Concorde. This aircraft featured the Singapore scheme on the left side, and British Airways scheme on the right side.
Finally, ExtraTech has produced an etch brass set EX-72168, though at the moment it is unavailable.
