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 ^^
Something I did a while back, doing the whole serie of the british V-force, Valiant, Victors and the Vulcans.. This is Valiant XD818, from the british nuclear bomb testing programme in the southers pacific, in the 1950's. (for the specially interested: https://books.google.no/books?id=6m43DAAAQBAJ&pg=PA24&lpg=PA24&dq=green+granite+small&source=bl&ots=Fx4Z2kkKWu&sig=OGjcdHoOfK_oJq1zQmBYxSfp0eE&hl=no&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwj9zeWfi43TAhXqHJoKHYrfCHQQ6AEISTAJ#v=onepage&q=green granite small&f=false) ........ and here's a very personal interpretation of the wiev from one of the Victors on the Black Buck mission against Port Stanley in 1982
From Alleycats' website, "As a sneak, there are new items on the way that include ...... hopefully also Valiant bomb panniers and Mk2 conversion" http://www.alleycatmodels.co.uk/ As a massive fan of this aircraft this is great news, it looks like we could now have two products to make WJ954 (and various wiffs!) from the Airfix Valiant kit. Would also be great to see a set that covers the proposed Conway powered production B.2!
