      Do you mean this one?

      Not yet in stock, but they've shown a little "leg" with these photos in the forum Britmodeller:

      You should be able to judge for yourself the shape of the forward fuselage from these images. In 1/144, any corrections would be relatively easy in comparison to 1/72!

      C'mon, A-Model! You can do it--a 1/72 version of the Caravelle would be right at the edge of your capabilities!

      Hopefully the Caravelle kit is a class better than their Comet IV B release
      which was total disappointment.

      The photos posted on this site are promising. Detail and moldings are a bit "soft," but the shapes look good. I would love to see them try it out in 1/72.

      Isn't the wing too swept? Looks like a DC-9 wing to me...

      Got it in one! Doesn't it just!

      (Funny though: the DC-9 emerged after an unsuccessful marriage between Sud-Aviation and Douglas in which the Caravelle very nearly ended up being built under the Douglas aegis. Sud-Aviation never forgave Douglas the eventual divorce, its advertising ["C'est une copie caravelle" or something like it; I quote from memory] directly challenging and charging Douglas with thieving the Caravelle concept for its DC-9. Yet another variation -- and not, as it happens, _entirely_ devoid of merit -- of the otherwise trite and false VC10-ski, Concordski, etcetera-ski series of thousands...)
