Vickers Windsor – Hrubisko collection

April 5, 2017 in Aviation

Hi guys,

My father has finished this not so common models in 1/72 scale. It is an interesting aircraft which increase our cellection.

Here are the final photos

My father also took some photos of others Vickers in order to see the different sizes. (Vickers Wellington, Vicker Warwick, Vicker Wellesley).

Cheers
Santiago

  1. WOW! I have never seen this one before. Great plane design and fantastic model (and all models I see in this post & web). This is definitely not an Airfix/Hobbico kit. Thank you for sharing this rare prototype (and all other happy yellow models you/your father have done). Amazing collection.

  2. If I recall correctly, these are all scratch built models, are they not? Your father has an amazing talent nonetheless.

  3. Very good job on that and on the others by the look of them. Good stuff.

  4. Santiago, fascinating collection. really different group of aircraft, and even one with a degaussing ring! Is the Warwick the Contrail vacform? I have never seen one built before, regardless. Kind of an also ran, like the Botha or the Albemarle, though with more service.
    How many completed models are in your collection, at this point? Your output and build quality are inspirational.

    • Many thanks. Yes, It is the Contrail Vacform kit.

      Well right now we have 753 (49%) models done correctly , 120 (8%) models to be rebuilt since they were done many years ago (during my father childhood) and 672 (43%) kits .

      The total number is 1.545 so far.

      My father has made an average of 43 models during the latest eleven years.

      Cheers
      Santiago.

  5. 🙂 … Greetings … 🙂 :
    Very nice and attractive work collection, very eye catching Santiago.
    Thank you for sharing them.

  6. Greetings. The Windsor must be scratchbuilt, right? What an aeroplane!

  7. What an unusual bird, and a great model of it! I wish more of these obscure aircraft would make it into injection molded kits, even if short-run. I’ll never get around to a complete scratch build, and vacuform scares me off as well. Excellent collect your father has built.

  8. This is a totally new airplane to me! Beautifully done! Pass on our compliments to your Father, Santiago.

  9. Amazing stuff !!!!! I’ve never heard of this one before……….. I really like the collection too. Your father is a fine craftsman indeed……………

  10. Now that’s unusual! And a great collection.
