Blue Steel Vulcan bomb bays

I’m currently building a white, Blue Steel capable Vulcan but was hoping to display it without the missile, as in this photo:

When these particular Vulcans flew without the Blue Steel, did they still have the recess bomb bay (below) or would they have been flown with normal flat bomb bay doors?

If the recess part above, those holes for the attachments and fin don’t look great, will I need to fill them?

May have found the answer! This photo was on Flickr of all places, amazing what you can find online. Anyway, it was taken in 1962, of XL320 according to the photographer.

 

Looks like I’ll need to fill the fin hole and put black caps on the two attachment plugs.

Unless these Vulcans flew with normal bomb doors sometimes?
