    About Patriot Missile's original post for this thread, the Air France version of the model is F-BTSD, also called Sierra Delta, was donated to the Le Bourget Air and Space Museum.
    And the British Airways version, the G-BOAC (British Overseas Airline Corporation), also called Alpha Charlie, and the plane is now on permanent display at Manchester Airport's Aviation Viewing Park.

    Detailed Concorde SST Model

    I agree,

    This is a model of the highest quality! This is not a big surprise for you who are used to Erik´s and Ralph´s previous work but the details and the resolution of this model are something special.
    I´m doing a scaled-up version on fine grain silk photopaper - no problem at all.

    Best,
    Bengt :smile:

    Air France Concorde SST

    Thanks, Gerardo,

    Very interesting pages - if I must pick one, it´s the Air France version.
    I think this colour scheme is the most beautiful.

    The pictures from "Sierra Delta´s" last Paris Airshow at Le Bourget are amazing - these pics really show the beautiful sweeping lines of this A/C.
    It´s a shame that these birds don´t fly anymore - but what airline today could afford a plane that consumes more than 25,000 litres of fuel AN HOUR . . ?

    Btw, did you see this pic of the small emergency tail wheel?:

    Bengt - I would have liked to have been a Concorde passenger8)

    Final Landing of The Air France Concorde F-BVFB - Good-bye, Concorde!

    Hi all,

    Here´s another great one - about 4 min long;

    The final landing of Air France Concorde F-BVFB at Solingen, Karlsruhe, Germany (accompanied by a beautiful italian song) and movie clips of the first flights of the French and British prototypes. Also, a rare clip of the Russian 'Concordski' - The Tupolev Tu-144 and an interesting computer graphic reconstruction of Concorde´s one and only fatal crash in Paris:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TWtQmGYx9Xg

    At the very end of the video, a Tupolev Tu-144 and an Air France Concorde can be seen displayed together at Sinsheim, Germany.

    Thanks to James Kirk who put it all together,
    Bengt :roll:

    Unfortunately I had to work that day, but I did see the Concorde on it's final approach to my old airbase. It was the third prettiest aircraft to ever land there. I worked on the prettiest.

    Pepsi Concorde on Display

    I'd like to revive this thread to let you know that designers Ralph Currell and Erik Te Groen again went for a homerun. They just released a new desingn for a speacial edition of the Concorde. This Concorde was a promotional campaign for Pepsi in Europe in 1996. It flew on 16 ocassions in 10 cities.

    Again, a very well designed project.

    I took some photos of the model on display for the Concorde Museum here in Juarez, on an event in a local mall.

    Thanks again, Ralph and Erik.

    Stevo,

    you're right. Why Pepsi.........? ;-)

    I think I'd better make a Coca-Cola version. The REAL thing !!!! ;-)


    Erik.

    p.s. Which version would you like ? Classic ? Cherry ? Diet ? Decaf ?
    Lemon ?

    Concorde Trio

    Wow, Gerardo,

    That´s a beautiful trio!
    You sure give credit to Erik and Ralph with your fine modeling. I´d better cut and glue some more on my Air France model before it starts collecting dust . . .

    Esplendido!
    Bengt :yep:

    BIG Concorde Build at Kartonmodell-Forum

    Hola Gerardo!

    I just saw this interesting build thread at the Kartonmodell-Forum - Christian Krüger builds his (Air France) Concorde model in 1:50 scale:
    http://www.kartonmodell-forum.de/forum/thread.php?threadid=2365

    Btw, if I ever go to Mexico, I´ll definately visit the Concorde Museo in Juarez - it looks really interesting!

    Best regards,
    Bengt :grin:
