I don't really know how all this group build suggestion and organising is supposed to work, but now that we have a new tool Vulcan on the way does anyone thing a V Force GB or Vulcan STGB might be a good idea for 2020/21? Ok so I think I understand all I need to do now This GB will be competing for a 2021 slot, hopefully the new Airfix Vulcan will be out by then. (A January or February slot would be very nice as it is not long after the Vulcan release and misses exam season) V Bomber Group Build II: .Anything V Force goes! This is Vulcans, Victors, Valiants and the development aircraft such as the Avro 707 or Sperrin. So when I say anything, I really mean anything. (Even non v force aircraft that were involved in development in a significant way are welcome, such as the Avro Ashton which tested Olympus engines) .I would like to include (semi) realistic what-if variants in this group build, such as the Vulcan B3 or a production Valiant B2. Alternate schemes are welcome, such as if Australia had bought Vulcans or whatever. .Airliner derivatives of each V Bomber were proposed so these are fine in the GB. Bonus points to anyone building an Avro Atlantic as I'd like to see them .V Bomber related builds, such as support equipment, all fine by me, but it would be nice to see this in a diorama with an aircraft .Any scale is fine, so the full range of V Bomber kits currently available is open to you as well as those which are more difficult to find .Standard GB rules would apply (perhaps an exception on the 25% rule for restoring old Frog type kits if anyone wants to do that kind of thing) .Bonus imaginary internet points from me for Vulcan B.1s .For members lacking in display space, the old tool Airfix vulcan will likely go down significantly in price and a pretty good cockpit section can be made from that. 1/200 Vulcans are only a little bigger than a 1/72 Spitfire, and a pretty easy build.
