Great Wall Hobby 1/144 Vulcan

Recommended Posts

Hi All,
Here are some shots of a model I finished a while ago. It's Great Wall Hobby's 1/144 Vulcan, shown after it's emergency diversion to Rio at the end of Black Buck 6. I'm sure you'll be aware that the Black Buck missions were flown against Argentinian forces occupying Port Stanley in 1982. The recovery to Rio was an outstanding piece of airmanship, that you can read about  HERE.

It's posed on a simple base, with Preiser 1/144 NATO figures to represent the crew. There's a full build log in the 'Completed Models' page of my blog - www.latibuliser.com

It seems Vulcans are in fashion right now. My 1/200, one in the Kuta XII GB, robvulcan building the trumpeter kit and now this awesome build. This is very impressive.

A very convincing build and those li'l guys make all the difference adding life, and a size reference.

 

Sweet work!

 

Kind regards,

Wow! Impressive model, the figures even more so, they must be tiny.

That’s very nice! The figures especially set the scene really well.

 

There certainly is a spate of Vulcans on the go here at the moment, it’s great for those of us who love the old girl

Fantastic job on those wee figures.  You'd think it was 1/72 with them alongside the kit.

Hi there,

 

A stunning example of my favourite Vulcan I still go and visit her regularly at East fortune.

A very nicely made Vulcan. You must have excellent eyesight to paint those little figures so well... very impressive!

Really nice Vulcan, but ... should it not have the IFR probe? 😉

All the photos show the probe still in place so I assume that if anything actually broke off it was jus the tip.
