1920s Handley Page Airliner – Travel in Style!

Handley Page W10 radio control rc

The next time you’re traveling by air, imagine what it must have been like to take a trip in the 1920s  in a 15-passenger plane like this!  This 15-foot-span Handley Page W.10 model is powered by two 60cc Laser twin-cylinder engines and weighs in at 86 pounds. Builder Neil Tidy spent 2000 hours on the model of the 1926 Imperial Airways aircraft. The video by Dean & Pete Coxon also shows a clip of a 16-foot-span, four-turbine Vickers Armstrong VC-10 built by Terry Mason. Enjoy!

  1. Very nice and very scale like. looked like it flew scale as well. Overall – WOW!! fantastic

  2. Modeling at the zenith! Can you imagine the courage it took to fly in the real 1926 airliner? What are the wires hanging from both planes? Antenna?

    1. The jet has refueling drogues from the wing tips, and the biplane is probably a radio antenna.

      1. The HP W10 was the first in-flight refuelling aircraft that conducted trials in the 1920’s.

  3. THAT IS PURE AND SIMPLE TALENT AT BEST YOU MUST NEED A TRAILER TO HAUL THAT BIG BIRD IN WHERE CAN YOU GET PLANS FOR THAT HANDLE Y PAGE AIR LINER

  4. Needs a bit of weight added to fly to scale but a great example of model art.

  5. Still after 50 years of modelling performances like this HP makes me feel humble!

  6. Hello.wished you were flying in chehalis,wash.lolsincerely steve
