BOAC & PanAm Concorde 8 Foot EDF Foamie







I believe in the saying "if you don't build it you can't fly it"
I will finish ALL my edf airliners! that's a promise! but I'm stopping with this Concorde build no more airliners untill all 5 jets are finished!

One person I've gotta give credit to for making this build happen is my friend Sam, his incredible Concorde build showed me this bird can be built.

I didn't know there was a proposal to convert the Concorde into a Blue-steele carrying RAF Bomber?

Thanks F&T I'll need all the help I can get for this build! All I've gotta do now is get the Concorde's Chiltons or Haynes shop manuals & I'll be in like flint!

Just to get an idea of what 8 feet looks like, these are my 707 plans the 707 comes in at roughly 6-feet, still it woln't be as big as I first thought.

I allways buy & build a plastic model of the foamie I'm going to build, this is a Revell 1:144 scale Concorde I bought on Ebay. I know some builders like Concordefan dosn't like me using scale models for referance but I think these scale models are close enough to the real thing . . . that's if you buy a good scale model, & not a linberg kit
