Caravelle and concorde from the gift set "la légende heller" at 1/100 scale

Hello, I got this kit for my birthday and started the concorde some week ago. The livery will be a what if mix of the 1st and 2nd prototype and the decals will be adapted for a 1964 variant. I already did the fuselage and nose (I’ll have to modify some part to have a correct dropped nose), didn’t had much difficulty beside maintening the fuselage in place using scotch. The kit has a lot of injetion mark but sanding them doesn’t bother me much. Got some molding issue on one wing but they don’t seem that hard to fix, here are pic of the fuselage and the nose:

When I was at my modelling club meeting, I remarked my stab weren’t symetrial so I unglued them and checked the wing. I didn’t properly assembled one so I ungled and reglued it properly. After that, putty, the sanding everything. Now the belly’s clean.

This week, I got the engine nacelle done. Could’ve done a lot better if I hadn’t already glued the top wing before the engines.

It’s going well, keep at it.

I never really noticed how far back the nose wheel leg was before! Must have been tricky to steer on the ground.

Wasn’t tricky for a kit from the 60’ (I find the level of detail to be good seeing it represent a project from 1964). The motivation came back, I’m done sanding the underside, now it’s the top wing

Done with the sanding quicker than I expected, now I’ll do the raised cheatline and air france flag.

Keep up the good work. A gorgeous aircraft and a pleasure to watch it come together.
