1/72 MQ-7221 Maquette Handley Page Dart Herald Channel Express Airlines or BIA British Island Airways - (ex-Frog)
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Good-
Hard-to-find and from original Frog molds. One of the very early British Prop-jet airliners, Heralds carried 56 passengers or 6.5 tons of freight at a range of 1000 miles and a cruising speed of 275 mph. Kit features separately molded rudder, ailerons and elevators, two position passenger and cargo doors, rotating props and wheels, seated and standing pilots. Includes two very colorful decal sheet and painting guide for both aircraft. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried and NOTE: missing one small part, a nose gear door. This part can be made from sheet plastic or cardstock. Includes all other parts, and decals and instructions. I did not see the boarding stairs with this kit, but they are not shown on the instructions. They were with the original Frog kit, but it appears they were not with this much later Russian issue.
