Bristol's Brtiannia was an excellent airliner handicapped by developmental delays which saw it eclipsed by pure jet aircraft prematurely. Had it entered service as planned, it would have been a world-beater. Even though it was never allowed to live up to its potential, the Britannia and its derivatives served faithfully and well for many years.

There's only this one in 1/72. It's rather larger than you might expect, and fairly crude. Maybe Revell will take leave of their senses and follow up the DC-4 with one?

No windows or window decals? Cleanly - let alone convincingly - painting the 19 or so windows makes this more a torture device than a model.

That's why the modelling gods invented aftermarket
