Here's my first entry to this Very Big GB...I'll get into it sometime this week as soon as I have made some space on the bench. Even at 1/72nd scale this is enormous... This is the profile...I like the camo. Plus, it looks like the one they used in "Thunderball"...I know...the Bond Vulcan was a B.1A... Nice looking decals. Plenty of stencils... And here is the sprue...Gi-normous...still scratching my head and wondering if this isn't really 1/48th... --John
Well Its been a while. After building so many Vulcans in the past I found it very hard to justify building another due to space. 15 72nd B2s takes up a lot. General Melchett provided me with the best excuse I needed to Build another while at Huddersfield.. I was asked to Join Bomber Command SIG which I was glad too and he said I should try and do a Vulcan for Cosford show. I picked this up while at the Huddersfield Show and it is a fine example by the looks of it. In that it is molded well some are not as good as others. (I still need to pick a username to Join the Bomber Command SIG with hopefully something more imaginative than Robvulcan which I picked in a rush joining this my first forum.) I love this kit and built many over the years mostly as weekend builds with my Grandad who has now sadly past but I feel I could do better and want to put more effort into this one. So this one will be wheels down and I still am not totally certain on which airframe I will be doing It is likely to be XM597 In the 60s low level High gloss camo with D-Roundels I don't think I will go heavy on the after market stuff but I have ordered some wolfpack intake inserts as they look fabulous and I am keen to try them. I am tempted to open up the Bombay but not decided yet as its not often you see them parked up and opened up. I think I might prefer to have it stood waiting on a QRA pan. I now have many projects on here stalled that I need to resume plus an ever growing shelf of doom and a still growing stash pile, I have definitely cause the modeling disease since coming on here and going to Cosford Telford and Huddersfield shows.. Very happy about it too. Britmodeller has helped make 2010 to present day very happy indeed. met some great people and learned lots. So here she is I CAN'T WAIT !!! Cheers Rob
