1/144 Scale Vickers Vanguard. Airfix. The Vickers Vanguard was a British civilian short/medium-range turboprop air liner introduced in 1959 by Vickers-Armstrongs, a development of the company's successful Viscount design with additional internal room.  Making its debut on the eve of the dawn of jet-powered civil airtravel, the Vanguard was largely ignored. Only 44 of the aircraft were built, on order from Trans-Canada Airlines (TCA) and British European Airways (BEA). This kit has engraved panel lines, doors that can be built either open with ladders or closed, four-blade propellers with spinners, optional undercarriage and injection-molded transparent flight deck glazing and cabin windows. Accompanying the kit are decals and color markings for two (2) aircraft: G-APEL, British European Airways, London Heathrow Airport, England 1963 and G-AZRE, Invicta International Airlines, Manston Airport, Kent, England, 1974. Hatch outlines, windscreen and fuselage window frames, wing walkway boundaries, nacelle trim, and airframe stencil data also included.
