1/200 - The most beautiful airplane in the world...

Okay, I'm exaggerating, but just a little... :lol: :lol:

But it is true that it is an extraordinary aircraft, and the fact that it is at 1/200 makes it even more beautiful : the Handley Page HP.142 Heracles

It is a very graceful looking aircraft to be sure, and that 1/200 rendition certainly does it full justice. Love the photo with it posed opposite the DH88 Comet "Grosvenor House". :mrgreen:

Of course in 1/144, there's the Airfix kit which, given its age (it dates back to 1965), is an excellent piece of work. Check out Merlin's build for more details. And curtains! ;)

It's nice, but I see your Heracles and raise you the DH. 91 Albatross (kit available from F-Rsin)

The HP.42 is one of my all time favorites. I swear I’ll manage to get one of those Airfix kits one day.
