Entex 1/144 Concorde

It arrived today and though there isn't a box the instruction sheet lists it as 1/144. The wingspan is 7 inches but I'm unaware of the prototype's span to calculate from. By the same reson, I can't tell if it's a model of a prototype plane or not. I have some fun reading when I dig out my references!

Looking at my 1/144 Concordes...

The full size ones are 83'10" span, the prototype length 184'6" and the production 191'6"

Airfix proto: len 15 3/8", 7" span

Revell: 17 1/8" long, 7" span

The proto has a shorter tail aft of the fin - this whole area has a smaller diameter. The other main difference is the nose. The proto is shorter. The supersonic windscreen is different as well, IIRC.

According to the Airfix instructions the pre-production aircraft are
