Thanks Rowan for the change to review this one. It did require that I got my reference material out to check the jet pipes and missile load out

Hi Luciano

I'm just glad you reviewed it - I think my only reference for the Vulcan is the old Profile Publications monograph that I bought around 1972. That doesn't quite cover Falklands-era operations!...

All the best

It looks like from the make up of some of the parts that we can expect some other versions. I do hope they kit the Blue Steel and Skybolt versions, but a B.1 would be tops as as far as I'm aware that has never been kitted. In 1/144 you have the room to do them all, just.
