1/72 Contrail Vickers Armstrong Warwick
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Exc+
Rare. Designed for Air Ministry specification B.1/35 for a two-engined heavy bomber, the Warwick was to replace the Wellington and used the same sturdy geodetic 'basket weave' construction. However, the prototype orders were canceled in 1936 to concentrate on four-engine bombers. Vickers completed two of the prototypes anyway. RAF Coastal Command liked what it saw and eventually 712 Warwicks were produced and used for transports, air-sea rescue, meteorological recon and anti-submarine work. One saw use as a BOAC Transport and the aircraft was used by the Air Forces of Poland and South Africa. The model kit features well molded vac parts with numerous injection molded parts. Alternate parts included to build prototype CIII, BI., ASR I, ASR (B Mod), GR V and GR II. With full decals for many aircraft including the BOAC version and large painting/markings guide sheet with many photos of actual aircraft. Never started. The small parts are still in the factory sealed bags; the other parts have been inventoried complete and includes decals and instructions.
