The site in the link is  dedicated to the VC10 and some of the people on the forum have been very helpful www.vc10.net

Some nice 3 view drawings at http://www.elodieroux.com/EditionsElodieRouxBonus_Drawings.html which can be purchased in eps format

Retirement

All the VC10’s have now been retired and a couple have been purchased one by the Classic Air Force  and the other at http://www.coldwarjets.co.uk/

ZA-148 at NewQuay has had her engines removed as you can see from the pictures.  The engines cost £12,000 each and the museum couldn’t afford them, the cost of ZA148 was £40,000.

Check this video out on YouTube – VC10’s and a Vulcan doesn’t get much better than that.  Sadly all these great planes are now museum pieces although a VC-10 can be seen at http://www.bruntingthorpeaviation.com/open-days/ on fast taxi runs

Chris Golds the renowned RC modeler has been very supportive and helpful as well as Alasdair Sutherland who’s book on Aeronautics for Modelers has been a real help which you can get form Amazon I’ve emailed them on a few occasions and both have replied and given great advice.
