1/72 Contrail Fairey Hendon
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: VG++
The Hendon was a RAF night bomber created in response to 1927 Air Ministry specs to replace the Virginia. The Hendon was a large twin engine monoplane of metal construction with fabric covering, making it the first all metal structure monoplane in the RAF. Fairey was no stranger to this type of aircraft, having already made several large monoplanes for record attempts. But the monoplane design was just too new for the minds in the Air Ministry and they opted for twin engine Heyford biplanes instead. 14 Hendons were built for the 38 Squadron. Vac kit with metal detail parts and full decals/instructions. Complete and never started.
