Posted (edited)

Something I did a while back, doing the whole serie of the british V-force, Valiant, Victors and the Vulcans..

This is Valiant XD818, from the british nuclear bomb testing programme in the southers pacific, in the 1950's. (for the specially interested: https://books.google.no/books?id=6m43DAAAQBAJ&pg=PA24&lpg=PA24&dq=green+granite+small&source=bl&ots=Fx4Z2kkKWu&sig=OGjcdHoOfK_oJq1zQmBYxSfp0eE&hl=no&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwj9zeWfi43TAhXqHJoKHYrfCHQQ6AEISTAJ#v=onepage&q=green granite small&f=false)

Surprisingly different views of familiar subjects - the Operation Black Buck picture is particularly impressive.
