Given that some of the Project X vacforms command stupid money these days on open auctions, I don't blame the seller for trying his hand here.

Phew, that is a tad pricy, I'm glad I have one already.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

Its not even that good, the Freightdog Resin version is far more accurate but even scarcer  :banghead:

Almost 100 for an old Airfix Standard VC10?  :o

They've got to be pulling our legs, OK, it's ancient, well OOP and can't ever be returned to production as Airfix modified the moulds to make the tanker, but that's a collectors market price. Even so the box iS knackered.

As for the Roden Super VC10s, they've always seemed to be overpriced to me, considering how small it is in the overall 1/144 airliner market. Those Polish sourced ones look much more reasonable, but the postage is a tad heavy.

Makes me want to drag out my FROG Super VC10 with lights, on that basis it must be worth 200!

I don't know if you'll reach 200 quids or not, but it's an HEAVILY collectable item. :mellow:
