On entering service the VC10 was a hit with both pilots and passengers. Britain's postal service, the Royal Mail, used a VC10 silhouette as its Air Letter logo for many years. Interestingly, the VC10's introduction on the trans-Atlantic services showed a 40% increase over the Boeing 707'-s that were operating on those routes at the time.  Passengers quickly became accustomed to a silent cabin due to the rear mounted engines and state-of-the-art seating. BOAC's First Class service was soon the preferred choice of travel for the rich and famous.

Please see the paint guide below for the manufacturer’s recommended colors. Roden recommends Vallejo paints for this kit, and you can find the full line by clicking here.
