Known as the Whispering Giant, the Britannia was Britain’s first long-range airliner but XM519 was one of the airframes destined for duties with the Royal Air Force. The RAF Transport Command scheme of gloss white, light aircraft grey and royal blue is beautifully applied on this weighty model, and the four props are very fine and free-spinning. A history of the type, and of this particular airframe, is printed on the box sleeve. www.geminijets.com
