  1. 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 som
  2. My next build is Airfix's 1:72 Handley Page Victor B.Mk.2 (my Christmas Present). Although my favourite aircraft to build are from WW2 era, my passion for real military aircraft comes from the 3 aircraft that made up our fabulous V Bombers. Of the 3 the Vulcan is my ultimate favourite, but the Victor, with its space age, almost alian loom is a close second. I plan to build the kit as it comes out of the box, using Vallejo acrylics in place of the suggested Humbrol. I am building her in the colours of 139 Squadron, Royal Air Force Wittering in the iconic anti flash white. Now down to bus
  3. I recently finished my Mikromir 1/144 Handley Page Victor B.1, painted as XA940, here are the photos The next images are unfiltered, but the filtered versions are closer to the real colour of the paint. And this is the real XA940
  4. I thought it was when I cut up a Vulcan to convert it to a Vulcan B.1a was when I had officially lost it, but wow.... I have built a second 1/72 Victor (much better than my first I think!) and am planning to buy a K.2 next to put on that lovely hemp scheme, after that I'll probably get around to a camouflage aircraft (perhaps by then there'll be a conversion set for the Airfix kit to make a BK.1a!). Not only have I built another of these, I also used Air Graphics' conversion set to convert this to a Victor B.Mk.2 at the very beginning of its service life, this is XM718 which I think was t
  5. Happy Christmas to everyone here in Britmodeller! I imagine many of us have some shiny (or not so shiny) new kits to build, so here's mine. An airfix Victor (which I knew I would be getting because I had to order it), and a pleasant surprise of the new Airfix Buccaneer, which to say I'm pleased with is an understatement; I love Buccaneers! My dad picked that out for me, not knowing it was a band new tooling (thank goodness for that, the old kit looks like a real challenge), perhaps because of my obsessive pouring over every last rivet of the Hendon Buccaneer, particularly it's wing folding mec
  6. Vickers Valiant. 7 Sqn. RAF Honington 1961. 1:144 Mikro Mir Second in my planned group of the 3 'V' bombers is the Valiant. Well known as the first of the trio to both enter and leave service, it was the simplest of the three, but no less attractive. Doing them in 1:144 is more practical than 1:72 for space reasons, and they also make an interesting comparison with my airliners. The kit is from Mikro Mir, and has more of a 'limited run' look to it than the Victor and Vulcan from Great Wall Hobby. It requires a little more care and preparation than the other 2, but is a perfectly bu
  7. Hi, This is my (almost) copleted Vickers Valiant. i say almost as not all of the decals are on it. i bought this kit from a particular internet auction site for about £40 inc P&P. i was a little irritated about the cost of the valiant kits as last autumn airfix were selling the valiant for £20 in their last chance to buy collection. this kit was a remarkably quick and easy build, as the only real interior detail is the bomb bay (which i left out) and the cockpit. the cockpit was a little basic, but the fit of parts was excellent. it needed a little filling on the fuselage halves and the
  8. Afternoon all, Sorry to trouble you with another quwey regarding the Blue Steel missile When viewing photographs of the Blue Steel missile being loaded onto the Vulcan and Victor, the upper tail surface appears to be missing from a few of those. So my questions are as follows: Was this fin removeable? When carried in the recessed bomb bay of the Vulcan and Victor, was the tail surface kept vertical and fitted into a recess or was it folded down? Thanks, Sam
  9. Handley Page Victor K. Mk.2 Revell (ex Matchbox) 1:72 The Victor was probably most famous for it's introduction in to the RAF as part of the V Force in the strategic bomber role or more specifically to operate as a nuclear deterrent, however it's career as an in-flight refuelling aircraft is where it cemented it's place in RAF history with around 30 years service in this role. First flown at the end of 1952, the B.1 entered operational service with 10 & 15 squadrons in 1958. Whilst the B.1 was designed to operate at high level, the improved B.2 was primarily designed to deliver st
