    What a fascinating contrast, the Lancaster and the Comet. Love the Ansett 727 of course. Thanks Sal.

    I'm on the case! Incidentally, that Tu-104 at Vnukovo is not the original CCCP-L5412' but another one painted up to represent it. Furthmore, this is the second one to be placed there and painted with that reg.

    The missing B.707s still needed to be done: Ethiopian, Uganda Airlines, Air Zimbabwe (rainbow scheme), Kenya Airway, Air Niugini.

    DC-8s still needed to be done: UAT, Iberia ('80s scheme), Air Ceylon, Surinam Airways, Air Spain.



    1/400 scale new mould wish list ; Tupolev Tu-114, Tu-134, Antonov An-12, An-24, Bristol 170 Freighter Mk.31, Armstrong-Whitworth Argosy, Airspeed Ambassador, Avro York
