United Airlines Vanguard - Beauty or Beast?

Postby Henry Tenby » Sun Jan 31, 2021 4:39 pm

This model was sold on ebay a few weeks ago for $1200 just one bidder. It is a pre production model from the 50s, but the nose is totally off from the actual Vanguard, it looks like a Stratocruiser nose. For me I find it totally gross, and I would have no interest in the model for my collection for this reason. What do you think?

That’s a real rarity! I’m a real fan of the Vanguard (I have a 1/72 Skyland BEA one) I don’t have a problem with fantasy or what if liveries, I like the model, not at all a beast!

Enjoy The Sky
