Airfix Catalogue description:

Thousands of people, together with theirs cars have been flown to and from the Continent of Europe for their holidays by aircraft of this type since 1948. With fully operating loading doors and loading ramps, this model excites the imagination. No less than 107 parts make up this realistic model, and the finished plane, with Silver City transfers and "14th July" nameplate, has a wing span of 18 inches. As with all Airfix aircraft kits more realism can be added by displaying them with Civilian Personnel from pack S6 in the Airfix range of "00" scale figures. - Taken from the 1st edition catalogue (1962)
