SMALLWORLD VICKERS VIKING/VALETTA

The Vickers VC.1 Viking was a twin-engined short-range airliner derived from the Vickers Wellington bomber. The Ministry of Aircraft Production agreed in 1944 to the Vickers-Armstrong Company developing a passenger carrying version of the Wellington for the post-war era. In all 163 Vikings were built. The initials 'VC' stood for Vickers Civil, echoing the 'DC' precedent set by the Douglas corporation of the USA, builders of the DC-1, DC-2 and DC-3 Douglas Dakota, and of a similar configuration to the Viking.The 158th Viking became the prototype of the military Valetta of which 261 were sold.
