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 modded Corgi wheels. I hope this will be the first of many and my second master model for molding is on the way but I may remold the original from which this was cloned soon. List of mods include: 1.Totally new wing shape with entirely different control surfaces and many other detail differences. 2. New nose shape and cock pit shape both detail differences and corrections. 3. Narrow intakes but a bit too narrow on this one partly due to the kit being too fat partly difficulty in the small scale. 4. Original tail shape with rudder extention 5. Original Tail cone with the second style extended tip 6. Cheek piece intake added. 7. Removal of all the many detail differences on the belly top fuselage and jet pipes. 8. bomb aimers window corrected and blister re-profiled 9. Wing pitos added 10.Re-scribe of the radome area tail and other details. Painted with Humbrol Rattle can paints and Revell Aqua paints. Decals from Mark1 decals who make the right size for V bombers. Hope you like her. Apologies for the photos these are from mid summer 2014 when this was completed. Lots of photos but wanted you to be able to compare them to the B2s one of which featuring my Resin Tail and tail cone. Cheers Rob
