  1. Hi all well this is my first post of the year I have been busy with a kit I have become particularly fond of and I have been looking forward to sharing these with you. I really would have liked to get some natural light shots but unfortunately I've had to resort to flash photography which I'm not keen on so maybe some better photos later should anyone like to see them. XH558 1992 scheme I tried very hard to get the cammo pattern right on this or as near too I tried to recreate her as I remember her when I was a kid and made up various decals for the entrance door script and large ejection seat triangles she used to carry I also extended the tail pipes. XM650 B2 a citadel wash was used for the panel lines XM605 giant voice markings citadel wash XM575 VX777 This one took 4 weeks to modify. the tail cone is wet finger shaped out of milliput using the supplied blue steel missile as a core and the tail extended using the spare supplied tail. the engine exausts were made out of airfix vc10 axle mountings. the air intakes were left as per kit. and the wings simply filled down to shape. the various parts removed from the engine tunnels and skybolt hardpoint plate plate removed. with XL321 from last year and with XH533 which i modded the rear to the type 2 cone last year and XL321 Group shots with others and a painted and restored wiking b1 xa906 Thanks very much for viewing look forward to your thoughts.
  2. Hi everyone. Much to my own surprise I find myself completing yet another Airfix Vulcan, this time though a commision build, which is just as well as I have no more space for another one. The brief was to finish it as XM575, in the dark sea grey wrap around camo, in 44 Sqdn markings based at RAF Waddington circa 1982 ( XM575 now resides at East Midlands Aeropark). The build was with all the usual well known fit issues, but this being my third Vulcan build I knew what to expect and how best to get around them. All panel lines were rescribed and I added a little extra detail in the rather sparse wheel wells. I also replaced the kits very poor jetpipes and added a set of my own turned brass 301 series jet pipes. I used the Flightpath photo etch set, along with a metal undercarriage set and a Master re-fuelling probe. Decals used were a mixture of Freightdog's 'Gods of Sea and Fire', Airdecal's 'Camouflaged Vulcans' , Fundekals 'Vulcan B.Mk 2' and the Airfix set provided in the box. Painted with Xtracolor enamels and finished with Alclad semi matt cote. Thank for looking, all C&C welcomed. Finally here she is with XJ824 built a couple of years ago.
