Handley Page Victor B.Mk.2 - Airfix 1/72

Recommended Posts

The model was built straight from the box, except for pitot tubes which are made with Albion alloy tubes.

I airbrushed a first coat of Alclad Primer, then a soft preshading and different coats of white. All colours are Gunze expect metallic parts

After decals and a coat of clear I did a washing for panel lines, and some filters for weathering with oil colours.

The white camouflage was more difficult than I thought! The results is a little bit “orange skin”

Decals are from XTradecals sheet

Before take photos I forgot to remove the masking tape from underside cockpit windows..... 😞 

sorry for the background.....

Brave talk! I think all of the V-bombers had their own forms of beauty but I do think that the Victor had the most interesting and charismatic shape - It always reminds me of 50's sci fi movies.

Great build and weathering!  I really like the back-quarter photo you took that shows the rear of the jet engines, which I think shows off your work  nicely. 

 

Cheers,

I'm with you.  I love all the V Bombers but I think the Victor is the most 'space-age' looking of the three so gets my vote.
