I don’t know if it’s just my screen but the photos appear to be horribly pixelated? Looks like a nice job aside from that but it actually appears like Lego on my screen?

I agree with @goggsy. I'm sure it is a very nice model but the pictures look like a mosaic floor. If you click on the picture you are taken to an upload page. I think you probably need to put in a direct link to you picture on your hosting site?

 

Cheers

Looks good from what I can see, but echoing what’s been said above, in that the photos are badly pixelated.

Sorry guys. Images are set to standard forum setting so do tend to look that way.

A much better set of photos has now replaced the original set.

That's much better Chris thanks - and you've made a pretty good of the old Airfix kit. I've owned a few over the years but never did build one of these - always looked to be a lot of work to get a decent result so well done.

 

Cheers

Great build.  Just as I remember them back in 1969 at RAF Scampton during my ATC camp.  XL446 appears on my log as being at Scampton at the time.  

Nice work .

Nice work .

It was based at Scampton for a number of years. It unfortuately ended up being scrapped there in November 1982.

Bl**dy Hell Chris,  you have smashed it out of the park with this one....!!!  I think most of us know what a challenge this big old beast is and you have delivered a real show stopper.  Staggeringly good mate, that must of took a huge amount of effort but it has certainly paid off.  Brilliant.

Fantastic work. I’ve got one on the go at the moment, can’t say I’m enjoying it! It will be XM603 in that scheme when it was delivered to Woodford.

Can see it now, looks great. Thanks for amending that, I’ve never seen photos do that on here before.

That's just incredible and awesome work on this old kit. Just goes to show that a bit (or a lot) or modelling skill can still create masterpieces from this old tool. 

Cheers and very well modelled.. Dave

Brilliant work on the Vulcan! If I could get this result from my old-mould kit, I wouldn't sell it when the new one comes out (I can't get that result and I will sell it, respectively).

 

Regards,

Awesome Vulcan, what a gorgeous build. Love this glossy camo scheme too, looks fabulous. 

 

Nice to see XL446; my white one is 443 - I bet between us all on BM we've probably got every Vulcan airframe!

Beautiful Vulcan in my favourite scheme, I do miss seeing ( and hearing ) those come over here and seeing them dispersed at Scampton and Waddington.

 

My favourite Vulcan build definately.
