I hope you’re right, but personally I wouldn’t bet on that. These options may be spread over two releases.
 

Cheers.. Dave  

Workbench does say:

We also feature images of the two ordnance options to be included with the first release

 

Seems clear enough.

Thanks for that, this is good news then. Best I read the full article prior to suggesting otherwise. This will be one hell of a kit then.

Fair play to Airfix on two counts - firstly its the same price as the Victor and I thought it would be more especially with the two bombload options which brings me to point 2 - they have included both options in the same box - had I been Airfix I would have issued two versions one conventional and one Blue Steel with different markings.

 

I imagine at least a couple of boxings though - antiflash white & camo, Black Buck and I was going to say XH558 but the old tool is still available for pre order for £38.99 which seems a bit odd to me! I guess one of the markings options will be the Newark example wot they used to LIDAR. I wondered if they were going to do a Starter/Gift Set for the new tool Vulcan as well but that seems unlikely. That said if they do a Strike Command Support Set then combine it with the Tin Triangle there is a third boxing there....

 

Of note the Victor is not on the Airfix website any longer if you search for it - a google search shows it as out of stock.

Will it come with crew?

Doubt it. Hopefully it will though, although I would rather see that space taken by more options on the aircraft.

Maybe the crew could be part of the (yet to be announced) V bomber support vehicle set. Comprising crew running as for a scramble with one at the foot of the ladder , one foot on bottom rung. Houchin, tug and tow bar, Matador Blue Steel transporter/loader, Cpl snowdrop plus airdog.

Me too, however all those CAD diagrams shown within Airfix’s Pre-Order page just show the Blue Steel option. I know the Workbench blogger mentioned both bomb load options will be included in the initial box, however I still have my doubts and will wait to see the final sprues before I’m fully convinced.

It is still available on special offer from Hannants - I got one a couple of months ago......

I suspect you'll get a Falklands option in the kit

This is both highly do-able and highly desirable. I would actually buy an Airfix V-bomber just to have something to display this set against. Do it, Airfix

When Airfix unveiled this model at Telford, I was deeply disappointed and underwhelmed  at yet another Vulcan! Okay, the tooling is much better than the first release and there is all that internal detail....which will not be seen when built!  Any modeller worth his salt will have made a decent job of Airfix's first Vulcan release. I have one built and another in my stash and I have no intention of paying £60 for yet another!  Sorry, but just my feelings that there is no innovative thinking or imagination from Airfix to bring us something not already done before.

Oh brilliant Airfix, ditching the k2 before I had a a chance of getting one cheap

There’s one in an eBay shop now for £50.95, I had 2 from this seller very recently and they are reliable and very quick despatch.

At that price it’s nearly the equivalent of VAT free, which has got to be worth a go.  Failing that you might be lucky and find one or two “under the table” at a model show for under £50 if you’re willing to wait a while.

With already every Vulcan scheme and squadron produced by after-market decal manufacturers, what is there worth waiting for? l
