Wow! Awesome! Need to move out of the US to build and fly big models! I just don't like the long, cold winters with nothing else to do but build.

Now that it's flown does anyone know if gear doors and the iconic drooping nose will be added? While an impressive feat it seems a shame to miss those features. Hoping this was a proof of concept model and the rest will be added?

+1 - especially the droop nose. It looks great in the air, but on takeoff and landing, the straight nose really detracts from it.

Default Concorde

A truly superb model, totally unique and he has even got the subtle contours of the nose correct.

The video has been going around the world before it reached RCU.

The nose does droop but it does not appear to have the retractable visor which always actuated before the droop snoot operated.

For take off and initial climb the nose was drooped to 5 degrees with a stowed visor, full droop for approach and landing, giving a much better view of the runway and vastly increasing the noise on the flight deck !

At the Brooklands Museum in UK , the guys who rescued DG, a preproduction Concorde, now have the nose and visor working so it is possible to see it in action. The mechanism itself was all designed and built by Marshalls of Cambridge and worked flawlessly, the switch for it being an old Britannia flap lever !

A truly fantastic model which will stop JetPower in its tracks.

Pity about the colour scheme though !
