I was at Brize 72-92. I worked it out roughly that's 40,000 man hours. 40 hour week and it wasn't! As far as models go. Anigrand do a 1/72nd VC10 kit. I bought one last year but I haven't started it yet. Its a bit big! Needs a load of work to get rid of the mistakes.
The RAF chose the VC10 as far back as 1962 after the Vickers V1000 and then the VC7 were cancelled and a long range transport was still needed. The RAF order increased when BOAC cancelled at half the 35 Super VC10s signed up for.
