Airfix 1/72 Avro Vulcan B.2 XM597
After my impatience with my IL-2 I decided to take David’s advice and teach myself some patience. So, I thought, what better way to do this but by attempting the Vulcan that had been lying in the stash for four years. I had just managed to pick up the decals for the plane I wanted to build so I went for it.
After 10 weeks of mainly sanding, filling and more sanding I give you my attempt at “The Grand Duchess of East Fortune” XM597.
I had so much fun and enjoyment building this even when she was staring at me from the worktable telling me that it was due time I was working on her.
Primed with Halfords Plastic Primer Rattle Can as she was way to big for my spray booth and was done outside.
Painted with Tamiya Dark Sea Grey, Medium Seas Grey and Vallejo Modelair Dark Green.
The refuelling probe was from Master
The Decals were from Airframe Decals RAF V-Bombers Pt III.
Finished with three coats of Galeria Satin Varnish.
