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
Well this was one of those "Quick Builds" That got fit into gaps between other projects and life events and 3 years later finally emerges as finished.. I love how shes come out Its my attempt at XL426 as she was in the VDF days battered and faded to hell just before handing over to the more famous VDF bird XH558. Hope you enjoy its my first post in RFI for ages now. Rob
Here is yet another Vulcan this is a 1/200th Dragon Vulcan finished with humbrol rattle can matt white with brush painted black areas and metalic areas. Sealed in Klear and then weathered with a mix of pencil, dark grey chalk powder, and citadel nuln oil. Finished as XJ783 in later style anti flash white. The only mods to this one is the tail cone this one features the early b2 tail cone with smaller more rounded tip than later ECM with a bigger tip. Hope you like her Cheers for looking guys
