All things VC10

Just a quick reminder the final VC10 from Roden is now available, as the K3 Tanker version. I would like to suggest a VC10 challenge. The best Frog VC10 to be displayed here will win a Roden VC10.

Interesting idea! It is alleged that is what Airfix did with the famous BT-K Spitfire (they pantographed it from 1/48 t0 1/72). I would be interested to see the "Caravelle" you have. I suspect it is the Frog/Novo version.

Thanks for the interesting post
