Hi

This is definitely a build I would class as ‘one for the shelf’, but I am glad it’s finished.

The kit is the GWH version and is actually really nice. I would try another one, maybe all white next time.

I would have liked a wrap around camouflage pattern, but the masking was killing me....so I went for the extra dark sea grey underside instead!

Victor next I think.
Hope you all like it!

regards

If the thread title hadn't said it was 1/144 I'd certainly bet it was a bigger scale. Beautifully built and painted.

Thanks guys.

 

Yes, the Valiant is the Mikro-Mir kit.....fitted where it touched and was a bit of a challenge!

 

I am hoping the Victor will be a fun build :).

Very nice kit, I've got three although the two I built were major conversions to the Vulcan B1a variant. Got one stashed that I might do as a K2 tanker.

Your Camouflage pattern looks pretty good, it's hard to get it to look right on the V Bombers (I've painted it enough times to have more than my fair share of mess ups).

Any more pictures of your Valiant? I am considering the insane idea of building the mikromir kit (might try to make some corrections along the way).

which Victor kit would that be? All the modern ones are pretty good but I'd avoid the ancient Revell/matchbox one.

Thanks Adam. I mucked up the panel line wash, but by then I just wanted to get it on the cabinet. I would def do another one, but Will plan it better next time!

The valiant kit is.....interesting to build. I did do it a while ago, but remember the fit being slightly challenging, but it was ok. 
There are some more pics of it on an earlier post of my 1/144 builds, about a week ago I think. But see below for one

I have the 1/144 GWH victor K2 kit, I am hoping to do it as Teasing Tina, I am trying to do a Mildenhall hall airshow theme from the early 90’s (very loosely).

👍 remember the gwh Victor K2 has the wrong wingtips, so they need shortening

Thanks Sir, I didn’t realise that! Though with my skills it will probably end up looking like a starfighter! Ha 😂
