1/72 04002 Airfix Fairey Rotodyne
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Exc-
The Rotodyne first flew in 1957. The purpose was to create the first true vertical take-off airliner that could operate from an area no larger than two tennis courts with a full load. The Rotodyne flew at up to 191 MPH with a range of 450 miles and a payload of 48 passengers or 5 tons of freight. Despite the excellent performance and a larger design in the works, the RAF never placed an order and BEA never placed a firm order. The project was discontinued in 1962. Never started. Factory sealed bag with decals and instructions.
