Well.... I keep on saying I'm genuinely insane and today that seems very true. Since lockdown began I have gained five Vulcan kits, moulded two tiny ones of my own, re painted an airfix vulcan, converted one of those five new vulcans to a B1a with a scratch built bomb bay and now my third Airfix Victor mysteriously appeared..... And that's just the V Bombers (or in this case, V Tanker?) I love this box art! I hope at some point we get a third version of the kit with more schemes and a new boxart because both so far are some of my favourites from modern Airfix. Perhaps some new fuselage parts, intake parts and some payload for the bomb bay and we could have the early B.Mk.2 freefall bomber (and perhaps even the prototype B.Mk.2 XH668 which had the B1 tail, but crashed after only around 100 hours flight time) XL512 (left, B.Mk.2R) and XM718 (right, B.Mk.2) decals look nice but the wing roundels for the camouflage K2 and SR2 appear to be too small like in the B.Mk.2R box Lots of plastic in the box, this should keep me occupied for a while. Looking through the instructions, the same error is present here as in the other kit, the raised flaps instructions at the top of the page are wrong. Do not cut the part off, instead sand down the fairing on the underside.
