    Those hogan models are long gone. Concorde's are very rare now and expensive.

    I have a number of these, mostly the Air France ones, but I also have a couple of BA ones (Landor & 'British').

    The 'good' is these models are pretty accurate. They appear to be 99.9 percent metal. For the most part they are assembled very well and demonstrate a civilized level of attention to detail. The moulding of the landing gear struts are particularly noteworthy, IMPO.

    The 'bad' is just a series of 'niggles' -- little things that can be classified as a minor annoyance. Here are some I have noticed:
    • The strakes on the nose are a touch too far forward. (In fact, Hogan could have left them off, IMPO.)
    • The windscreen is a touch too short.
    • The nose dips a very small amount, giving some of these a very small upturned nose.
    • Some of these are affected by scuff marks along the top of the wings due to Hogan's packing methods at the factory.
    • Some of these don't get a proper base coat of white paint. The main fuselage is painted at a different time than the wings, so occasionally one can find a Concorde with one section well painted in white, and the other section with a thin coat of white resulting in a blue/grey-white appearance. The model then looks vaguely two-tone. It is only really noticeable in certain types of lighting conditions. My delivery livery Air France one exhibits these tendencies.
    • Sometimes the tail is attached crooked. I have one or two where if I look from the nose straight down, the tail is slightly leaning to the right.
    • Generally, all the Air France markings are seriously on the money, but the BA Landor one can have a hard angle on that red cheatline, just back of the front door, where it should be smooth. This can appear to a greater or lesser degree on different Landor marked models. The 'British' one looks OK to me. I can't speak to the other BA ones.
    These are hit-n-miss and can affect any of them. If you get any with NONE of these little niggles -- BONUS!

    As I said, though, I have a number of these Concordes, so, niggles and all, they are all highly cherished and I'm really quite satisfied with my supersonic collection.
    Élégance en vol . . . Airfrance-style.

    It is the one close to the current livery.
    The one I saw in Toronto years ago had the red tail livery but the same
    registration number B-BOAC.
