The Airfix kit is an acceptable replica of the 1/144 Trident 1C, with some minor errors which may be corrected by a bit of simple work. This is the standard airliner modellers had to live with for far too long.

This one brings back memories. I built this at the age of ten. After having a few models under my belt, I realised that brush painting the white was a no no. So I sprayed it with car paint. The poor kit melted before my eyes Hey ho. lesson learned. Great review Jess.
All the best.
