  1. Nicely done Allen, don’t see many of these completed. She looks good.

  2. I’ve been following you closely on this one, Allan. Great work! The extra attention you gave to the intakes and exhausts really paid off. I like seeing Valiants in the silver scheme and the Australian roundel sets it apart.

  3. Looks great – what a treat to see two V-Bombers in two days!

  4. An excellent build Allan!

  5. Oh that looks very nice. The Valiant was the most conventional of the V-bombers and ignored for long by the kit manufacturers. Great build. I like the clean finish of your model.

  6. Absolutely stunning, Allan! I’ve been so looking forward to running into these post-war/cold war/modern decades because of the choices you made for the group build. This is, I’d say, a unique build – the silver scheme, the Aussie livery and the modifications you made – just perfect.

  7. Allan, nice build on another interesting British airplane. I like it !

  8. Hello Allan,
    Master Modeler.
    Not a seam insight! Regards, Dirk
