Avro Vulcan B2 1/144 (GWH+Shelf Oddity)

May 9, 2019 · in Aviation · · 10 · 3.6K

This is my rendition of the early B2 XH556 depicted as in No.230 OCU Finningley, ca 1962. The Pit-Road/GWH kit and excellent Fundekals decal set inspired me to tackle the Vulcan subject. To portray the early B2 airframe the kit had to be backdated a bit – the nose cone and a tail-tip antennaes as well as in-flight refuelling probe had to be removed. Hopefully the coming GWH Blue Steel release will make things easier. The by-product of this build is the ShelfOddity PE set. MrColor GX Cool White and GX100 Super Clear III lacquers, which allowed for easy surface polishing, made the painting a relatively straightforward task.
