Concorde Build Update #3

Final detailing of my 1:100 Scale Concorde is well underway with the addition of some underbody details around the engine intakes and leading edges of the wings. The windshield visor (used for supersonic flight) has also been added in its retracted position.

I am trying to hand paint as many of the details as possible rather than using decals to ensure my Models remain mostly handmade, whilst ensuring a quality finish is achieved. After all I regard my Models as Art.

This week I have also continued making parts for 5 additional Concorde’s which will eventually be available for sale.


Concorde Build Update #1

Finally got back to detailing the Concorde. Took a bit of time to mask up, and ensure the lines are clean and straight. Air brushed in the orange stripes ready for the window decals to be overlaid. I’m pleased with the result so far.

Concorde Build Progress – Start to Paint

I’ve started making parts for 3 additional Concorde’s due to some interest from friends. Need to get back to finishing the final detailing of my master build below. I have painted the vertical stabilizer red after deciding to go with my original idea and finish with the proposed Qantas livery in 1966 after Qantas placed early order options for the Concorde before cancelling later that year.
