  1. Having finished the Buccaneer, it's time to turn my attention to the next model on my shelf of doom - the 1/72 Revell HP Victor: It's not the first time this model has appeared on BM. It was on the recent KUTA GB at the end of last year, but never quite got finished... That build was a bit of a nightmare (the intakes immediately spring to mind!). If interested, that build is documented here: Since abandoning work on this model, I have taken delivery of the new Airfix version of the Victor - a vastly superior kit: My original plan was to have just one Victor, painted in the camouflage scheme. However, now I have two kits I want them to look different. I've decided that the Airfix kit will be getting the camouflage scheme, so what to do with this model? Two options: 1. Keep it as a K.2 Victor and paint it hemp 2. Convert it back to a B.2 and paint it white I've changed my mind a few times on which is best! I've finally decided to go with the second option, mainly because the Airfix kit has also included spare decals for this version and they are much better than the Revell offering... Also, I think white paint suits the aircraft better than hemp! So here's the current state of play: Obvious jobs include discarding the refuelling pods and underwing fuel tanks then filling those four holes in the wing. I could keep the wing tanks, but in the interest of making both models look different I think they should go - the camouflaged Victor will have these fitted and most photos of the white Victors show the aircraft without them, so that is a more representative way to portray this aircraft. A bit more surgery will be also be required on the belly to remove the central refuelling area. With any luck this will be a relatively quick project!
  2. Ready for inspection is my Airfix 1:72 Handley Page Victor. This is a straight from the box build, using Vallejo acrylics in place of the suggested Humbrol. The kit is fantastic to build, fits together smoothly, and has a lovely amount of detailing. This has to be one of my favourite builds. Thanks for looking.
  3. Airfix 1/72 Vickers Valiant BK.Mk.1 XD857 Built OOB, more atmospheric shots (and more V Bombers!) at the end: Stressful picture to take! The stand barely held the model add it didn't fit at all properly! In fact you can see one of the rods is just under the model. I did promise the complete V Bomber trio (sorry I don't have a Sperin to make the four... yet!). No nice backdrop on these images though, perhaps I'll take some more at some point... Here's the WIP thread ^^
  4. Absolutely loved building this. A real Mojo restorer. OOB apart from some resin ejector seats that can't be seen and the Master pitot probes. Hope you like it. WIP here...
