Just noticed the Green Sunderland in the last photo, This is a postwar Dr Grope reissue of a wartime 1/200 ID using the original tooling.

Also Corgi [Mettoy/Playcraft] made similar style models in the early 1960s under the Vapour Trails mark that are sometimes confused with Wikings.

Image

These too had a wire stand, transfer decal sheet, ID style aircraft information sheet. The base of the stand, however, was a soft suction cup affair and if kept in contact with the model, it would melt into it.

Image

There were 5 aircraft in the series, all British. The one missing from the photos the Sea Vixen

Changed the ID of my browser to Classilla (I previously had it saying it was Chrome) and now pictures are loading. Strange.

Return to 1:200 scale aircraft. Both Military IDs and past or current makes.
