Man, that's one big, beautiful bird! :clap2:  You've done some great work on this fantastic scale model plane.   It would compliment any collection in which it's displayed.    Bravo indeed!  :thumbsup:

Now that's a great job, Mr. Madman. Excellent craftsmanship, very well done! Why oh why can't Airfix scale this down into my preferred 1:72 scale? I dread having to re-scribe yet another one of their old tool kits.  :cry:

 

Cheers,

Bill

That is just lovely, one of the most attractive jets! That and the Vulcan are iconic.

A lovely model, even if the aircraft itself was flawed.  There was one as Gate Guard at RAF Leeming in the 90's when I was there.  May still be there.  Still can't get over the sheer size of it!

That model has presence. Its gonna dominate a contest table just out of sheer size.

 

Beautiful job. Have the kit in the stash myself and i'd love to build it one of these days.

Really great work mate, its beautiful!

I have this in my stash that i'd like to get on to soon; how did you go about the roundels on the top section of the wing? To me the first thing I noticed was how to go about getting the roundel decal to fit over the vortex generators?

Hi the roundels were a pain to go down, there are holes in the decal for the vortex generators to fit through which isn’t to much of a problem but there is another prominent feature that the decal needs to conform to and here is where I had trouble which need loads of decal setting solution but both roundels still split on me so just had to touch up with paint 👍
