Concorde, the first and to date only supersonic airliner to go into regular service, the Russians built Conkordski but I do not believe it ever really got beyond a case of ‘what you can do so can we’, it did however fly before Concorde by a few months. I believe Concorde was one of those airliners that stuck in the memories of anyone who flew upon it and from my side saw it fly on a number of occasions. With all this said anyone who has been on one of the preserved Concorde’s has seen why being fast was at the cost of space and some extent comfort. This new release from Revell of Germany is a release of the Heller and AirFix offering in British Airways livery.

It seems a pity that they chose to use the Heller moulds when Revell have made such a name for themselves in large-size 1/72 aircraft.
