I have long wanted a Concorde to add to my small collection of 1:200 airliners - a plastic model kit, not some über-expensive die-cast. I thought this kit would fit the bill. And it did, albeit with some minor problems.
The fuselage halves were a bit hard to fit together and I got some unsightly gaps near the cockpit. It appeared that the black-painted insert for the cockpit was a little too wide. After some trimming with a knife and some gap-filling super glue, I overcome this problem. The nose and tail cones didn't fit very well either and needed some trimming and a little glue. Apart from that, the rest of the kit went together just fine, except for the nose gear which was very hard to press in place, I was afraid to break it. The main gears on the other hand were loose and wobbly and needed a little glue. The plane can also be built with the gear "up", but it's a pity it doesn't include a display stand for displaying this beautiful aircraft in "flying" position.
The model is pre-painted, but the engine intakes were all white inside, so I painted them flat black. I also touched up the tyres and the rear parts of the engine nacelles with a little black paint because removing them from the sprues left large white spots.
In all, a nice little model of the Concorde, about a foot (30 cm) long. But one thing I don't like are the passenger windows, represented by shallow white recesses which makes them almost invisible. It would be better if the windows were tampo-printed in black.
I can recommend this kit to those who want a cheap 1:200 scale Concorde, but be prepared for some extra work if you want it to look really good.
