Nice! ;)

Olympic's livery looks quite dated! Maybe that's what makes it look so much like an old 707... :?

As one of my aviation chums (he used to work for British Caledonian) reminded me that my die cast Hogans Wings Concorde is inaccurate because in 'wheels down' mode the nose would be hinged down droop snoot style. Couldn't argue with that but who cares!? Don't know if the plastic kits have the articulated nose.

I would suspect that if the plane was positioned for a length of time the nose would be raised. You wouldn't want rain.hail, snow and sleet in the hinge gubbins would you ?
Besides it looks better nose up. Have still to get the prototype Concorde and maybe a Landor livery.
Definitely not getting the Pepsi abomination !

It really is humongous. Difficult to comprehend almost. The tail plane alone must be vast.

I prefer the look of the high level cockpit on the Boeing though. The A380 puts me more in mind of a cargo plane.

Just a thought David... do you have any 1:72 planes which are smaller than your 1:400 A380?

Tristar is unusual.

British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.

Don't stop yet. Keep 'em coming! Nice adds to the fleet. Got a barn handy to build a diorama? Subject could be Heathrow or Gatwick? With 40+ 'gates' it would make a model railway layout look a bit puny. Of course with Gatwick as your airport you could incorporate the railway as well. Just a thought.
