Well as I'm clot I've made it so the Shackleton will be delayed till I've got parts from revell. So will switch to this. Attempted this kit for the first MIB. This time I have the advantage of not having to fit AM exhuasrts and knowing how to avoid he issue that cost the first try. 71590E4D-95B2-43FD-8867-2F9EA9CF8CED_zps

And were off, no detail in the pit, not even dial decal as it was really translucent and the black paint wasn't fully dry so its just black now, might try printing a replacement off. Avoided the issue that killed the last by not fitting the wing halves together, which will go togethor after the intakes are cleaned up a bit to make the seem a bit less unsightly.

Well I'm a total tool, I knew I was short of white paint before I started this but yet decided to not go and buy some, now won't be able to till Tuesday, might prime and piant the halves in the meantime separately

Well today started on a negative, had a tidy up which included finally admitting I'm not going to salvage the valiant I built over Christmas, so it was binned. But then cracked on with the Vulcan F4DA6D74-5D16-4A7A-9B7E-01D45812D05C_zps2CF4C988-6A54-41F7-A350-908A9A3D8B16_zps

PBS, you are doing a great job with this, looks like it is going together quite well.

 

You also seem to get through your stash quite rapidly too, and always with lovely end results!

Not worked on it past few days as been working on the airbus and spitfire19 but reloading to try out my 2nd flkr account (can't get into my first and flkr can't prove I'm me so won't help)

Bloody hell this has been trouble, a lot has happened in between but finally the top camo is now all done, just to sort out the bottom with some big problems that arose during the break. Won't go into to it, like with 'nam you werent there man

Well a lot of sanding required on the underside. Not all done as I got to scratch mould replacement flap actuators as I had to remove them to aid in sanding, and the crack on the port wing tip still needs more. Lost a bit of the raised lines but oh well.

Not happy, utterly failed at the scratching of the flap actuators, miliput just comes away when sanded, really not sure how I can do them now

Almost done, all the aerials on and the paintwork finished and glossed, can see my scratchbuilt pylons (didn't know one of them was already included in the kit) and my makeshift exhuasts from 8mm tubing, might attempt to bore it out before calling this done

Looks great, sharp finish.

 

Maybe mount it on some acrylic or brass rod? Would look cool over a map of the mission or Falklands.

Cheers, map is a good idea though it won't happen, would like it to live in its current position on the dresser next to my other Vulcan, have got some spare  aluminium tubing left from the the exhausts, might be worth using that to fashion some kind on support

Great job Stu  :thumbsup:   ..... Good to see another Vulcan over the finishing line.

 

It sounds like you are going to put the tubing to good use.
