XM600 Vulcan to the Sky!

11Ok, so may be not to the actual sky. But after 9 years (admittedly 7.5 of which she was being used as a toy by my kids), my 1/72 Airfix Vulcan build is complete and you can see the final reveal photos here.

As you probably know this kit is a dog to build. Badly fitting parts and raised panel lines which need to be re-scribed are but a few of the hurdles you need to navigate on your way to a completed build.

But when you do finish one of these, the satisfaction is immense, and the final shape is amazing with curves in all the right places.

I write this blog for fun, to share what I've learned, and to share my builds with you. If you like what you see here please leave a comment, and head over to facebook and like my page!

    Very impressive. I have a photo of my dad next to XM600 in 1965. Would love to see some of your source photos.

      Thanks Jonathan.

      I don’t have any photos of XM600 I’m afraid, my references came from colour illustrations in reference books. When I did my research I couldn’t find any actual photos on the web – which was a shame.
