  1. Anyone who has built a Vulcan B1 in 1/72 from the Airfix kit, or in 1/144 from the GWH kit.... How??? How do I go about converting one? I know of the Flightpath conversion set, but it looks like a lot more work is needed. Has anyone got, or knows of, a guide to converting one, or a thread comprehensively detailing the build? What other modifications would be needed in a Vulcan B1 that aren't covered in the conversion set? Same for the straight early wing production aircraft? I'm just desperate to build a Vulcan B1...
  2. Recently I finished this model, it's an extensive conversion of en early Vulcan B1 based on the 1/200 Dragon/Cyberhobby kit. There is currently no kit available of the Vulcan B1 or B1a, either the early straight wing or more standard Phase 2 kinked wing, so the only option is a conversion. This is my third Mk1 vulcan, the other two being B1as based on the GWH kit. Anyway, this model represents XA891, my favourite Vulcan out of all of them. '891 was the third production Vulcan, on of the five (7 including prototypes) with the straight wing. Later the aircraft was refitted with the standard
  3. So... I made a very small Vulcan B1 Flying away in its natural habitat, the skies of my modelling desk It's a cast of a small vulcan pin badge made with some reusable moulding stuff I have. I was just playing around with it trying to figure out how best to use it and this is my test subject, I'm going to mould another tonight hopefully I'll get a better cast. I used too much material on this one and well, it ended up a little chunky. The wingspan is about 2.6 cm so I think that's about 1/1100 scale. Crazy small. ^^ and that's after cleaning u
  4. The Avro Vulcan is my favourite aircraft without a doubt. Although the only one I ever had the chance to see in flight was the Vulcan B.2 XH558 from 2007-15, my favourite Vulcans are the B.2's less famous predecessors, the Vulcan B.1 and Vulcan B.1a. The first B.1s retained the pure delta of the prototypes, although after the fifth aircraft they were fitted with the first iteration of the Vulcan's distinctive kinked delta. The Vulcan B.1a was a stop-gap measure while the B.2s were coming into service, they were given the full set of ECM gear of the early B.2s with a few other less notable modi
  5. This is my latest completed model, an unusual Vulcan B1. This is based on an Airfix kit that I got second hand, and intended to restore and convert to the earlier variant. This project failed, so- much like the a number of the real things- this is what I salvaged from it. I misplaced the stand I had for it... I'll add more photos when I find it or get another The model represents a fictional survivor, not a real one. Amongst other things I wanted free reign on the weathering and colour scheme. I'm rather pleased with how the wood came out. It is actual wood, bu
  6. Good day fellow Britmodeller's and welcome to my first build thread in a very long time. In this thread i will convert a 1/200th scale Dragon Avro Vulcan to from a B2 variant to a B1a. As some of you may know i have built a few of these and really love the kit. I have an idea to cover most the vulcan's variants in this scale in various schemes also and mount them on a stand of some sort perhaps all in flight in formation in order of age. I have long been fascinated by how different b1 vulcan's and b2 vulcan's were and i just really love the early kinked wing shape. there is just something a
  7. Welcome. Here is a project I started good few years ago. Its the old Lindberg Vulcan. I have always loved these old kits. Its not terribly accurate but its got tons of charm and really captures the esscence of the time this vintage kit was made. An exciting new time for technology and a futuristic comic type vibe. Its as described by a friend of mine a Charachature of the vulcan. Untitled by Rob Hayes, on Flickr The art work is inspiring this is one of many boxings of this it was even released by Revell at one point which is how I first built it as a kid in
  8. Hi all I recently got lucky and picked up the extremely rare FROG Avro Vulcan B.MK.1. It is the only Vulcan B1 ever Kitted. The lindberg is not very accurate and more reflects the 1st Prototype. The FROG however for its time is pretty darn accurate. It has a few issues. The tail fin cap needs rescribing a little lower. The radome although right in style its a little miss shapen. But a better attempt than airfix's proposed radome line. For its time an amazing kit. It is from the early 60s I believe and was made from the original plans (say's so on the box) It even has quite finely recessed
  9. Its been a very long time since I posted here in RFI. Here is my 1st Resin Model and its one I molded myself. This is the test shot from a trial mold and trial model for some resin conversion parts for the Pit Road GWH Vulcan B2. Its taken a while and the project still has a long way to go with further changes to make. So far this is 2 to 3 years work and still lots to do. The mods in the end where so extensive that my Dad suggested why not mold the whole plane and that I thought sounded fun and went ahead. This is a solid Resin Vulcan with a separate solid resin tail piece. Temporally on mod
  10. Here's the first of the series of aircraft I associate with Filton Airfield, and the one that brings back the fondest memories of standing on the cycle track on the A38 at the eastern end of the runway with the roar of the engines and the smell of the jet fuel. XA903's history has been recounted in detail elsewhere, and is well worth tracking down, sadly only the nose remains at 2AV8 near Stranraer. This build is based on the Pit Road/GWH B2 kit and converted to a B1 (thanks to robvulcan of this manor for inspiration to attack the wings). I have not altered the intakes (intentional) or inclu
  11. On the wall of a small BAE Systems office on Riyadh Airbase, Is an 8 x 6 inch picture of a White Vulcan B1 coming in to land. It could be Scampton's newly extended runway as the fence looks new. The only markings that can be seen on the aircraft is a small black 92, 93 or 94? on the fin. The shot is from the front left. No one now knows why the picture is there, Or how long it has been there. I'm just curious to know if anyone can speculate on what I've given and maybe help with a squadron and maybe an approximate date.
  12. Hi all good britmodeller folk welcome to this the first of my multibuild on th WIP section. It has been fun and long and its no were near finished yet so if you want to follow the rest here is the link: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234936632-1st-one-finished-dragon-vulcan-b1a-2-b1-big-surgery-for-3-small-kits/ This model is a holy grail for me with special significance and a funny ironic link that makes me smile. For when I was a kid I had bought for me a video called the vulcan story in the middle was full colour footage of very pretty white vulcans that looked some
