I never expected this kit transform like this...! looks great!
Exellent work Allan. A very unusual subject tried and tested by Fairey.
It looks absolutly wonderful.
This sure isn't the most common subject!
Thanks Jeffry, not seen often !
Looks great Allan ! They were amazing machines.
Thanks Phil, shame it was so noisy !
One of your better examples, Allan...sharp-lookin' build - I like it.
Nostalgic kit, but a very sharp finish in build and paint.
Regards, Dirk / The Netherlands.
Fantastic job Allan ,I've been thinking about building one of these for ages it looks great.
Thanks Neil, yes build it !
Very nice - hard to believe this old kit could finish up so nicely! Well done.
Thanks Greg, yes came out OK !
Cracking job on that Allan. Makes me wish i hadnt sold mine.
Thanks Anthony, could always buy another, if you can find one !
Yeah but I could not build it to the standard you have here. I have not seen a better one.
Fantastic job, must be quite big.
Thanks Mark, 60' diameter rotor, so a fair size !
A bit of misinformation from my reference book, should be 90' or 27.43 meters in diameter !
A nice blast from the past. Beautifully done!
Thanks Robert, when was that pic' of yourself taken ?
Splendid stylish model finish and super flashback for me. I wish these were whirling around us silently as a city transportation vehicles.
Thanks IT, silently !
Allan, beautifully done, and rarely built. I remember reading that they were very loud, and it was hot being around them when they operated.
Thanks Bernard, very noisy, and four tip-jets pumping out hot air !
Allan, that is one unique and cool looking model- Great build!
Thanks Erich, one of a kind !
Fantastic work on what must be an ancient kit. What a pity they were never that successful in real life.
Thanks George, it is, if only they hadn't been so noisy, who knows !
Great work Allan, good to see this fascinating aircraft and kit actually built.
I remember just how dreadful this kit was. Which makes your transformation truly a fine silk purse from a sow's ear. Really good work here!
That turned out great, Allan. That’s the first one I’ve ever seen finished.
