    New tooling is great looking forward to the build

    This 1/72 Airfix model is an eagerly awaited item. Airfix produced an earlier model of the Vulcan B1 Bomber years ago, and this is finally the model of the Vulcan B2. I haven’t built it yet, but have checked out all the parts and instructions – looking forward to getting started on the build.

    Fabulous service!! Speedy delivery, ordered Sunday and was here by Tuesday!
    Item was boxed excellently also.

    This is in many ways a vey good, well moulded kit. No discernible flash and most parts fit well, with one or two notable exceptions:
    1) the cockpit and front fuselage.
    The cockpit deck and weighting capsule require an awful lot of filing to allow the outer fuselage haves to come together accurately. Given sufficient work and patience this can be done but at £60 this is not a cheap kit and I’m not happy at having to do this amount of work. All told I would say it took a good two hours to achieve a satisfactory fit

    2) Undercarriage
    Undercarriage is almost always a fiddle but after several hours work I still haven’t manages to successfully locate the landing legs into position. I’m getting close to the point where I’m seriously considering consigning the whole thing to the bin.

    On a final note, kit related but not the kit itself, I used Humbrol 163 Satin for the dark green camouflage. There were some areas needing touching so I ordered a small tin of 163 green satin so I could touch up where needed. Unfortunately, this turned out to be significantly darker than the spray so the whole green part of the camouflage needs to be redone. Also the paint in the tin turned out to be gloss.

    All told a very disappointing project and a potentially fine kit thoroughly spoiled by key Ill fitting parts
