    The world's first turbo-prop airliner was the British made Vickers Viscount. The first flight took place in 1948 with a more powerful engined Type 700 taking flight on August 3 1950. A stretched variant named Type 800 was 3 feet 10 inches longer with even more power and a new fuel system and flew on July 27 1956. It could carry 71 passengers so it soon was operating with about 70 airlines and 9 militarys around the world. Production ended in 1964 with 445 aircraft of all types produced.

    Viscount c/n 453 was a Type V.843 with Rolls-Royce Dart 525 engines. It was one of six purchased by the CAAC ' Civil Aviation Administration of China. It first flew on August 8 1963 and was delivered on September 19, 1963 registered as B-406.

    Pros:
    Cons:
    The model is as good as shown in the display photos with neat & accurate livery paintwork right to the yellow tipped spinners. The props turn, the wheels roll and the windows and panels are accurate. This has been my first purchase from diecastairplanes and is good value for money. Delivery to India was completed in less than 2 weeks from order.
