So is the lower level first, business, or cattle class?

And very impressive engineering. :thumbsup:

Impressive!  Shame the VC-10 didn't see more development.  Definitely the prettiest (subsonic) jet airliner ever built.  Nice work!
So I got that going for me...which is nice....

Looks excellent Harro, lovely build and what a line up  :thumbsup:

So more VC10 projects next or maybe the 311 or something completely different ? !

Super work Harro  :bow:

I wasn't aware of any of these projects so it's educational as well. Also sad that they didn't see the light of day  :-\

Double-bubble VC-10, very nice. :wub:
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

Well done,
1/72 scale might be a bit tricky. Although the Heller/Airfix Boeing E-3 and the engines from a B-52  would create something along similar lines.

It's one of the reasons I enjoy reading 'Secret Projects' type books - so many projects that never got off the drawing board and are relatively unknown.
