I'd go with that, and a bit more aerodynamic too.  The bigger problem would be fitting the equipment and operators into the Vulcan's cramped cabin.


They could either go in the bomb bay, like the EB-47s, or in the nose where the original radar went.

OK, so those areas would need to be pressurised, but that'd be just a mere detail.  ;D ;D

How about like this Kit




That's a bit too ugly, even for me Robert.  :o



And Whirlybird did/does Chinook blade replacement sets, got one in the stash somewhere.


Indeed they do, thanks for the tip. 8.50 a set for the new composite type blades. I can pick some up at Telford with luck.  :thumbsup:

So am I, when I can generate the idea as to how it should look.  ;D

I'd need a few more 'dyne kits first though, and a LOT more Chinook rotor blades too.

Who did those aftermarket Chinook blades anyway, I can't remember?

Try shapeways.com. I've found 1/350 aircraft there, and have been happy with the products I've ordered.

I'll get my build speed up eventually.  I'm still very new to airliner builds so I guess I shouldn't be too worried.  :wacko:

Mitsubishi Ki-99 'Beryl' - 762nd Flying Group, Imperial Japanese Army Air Service, 1946











Quite a simple one this as the grey/green skin already existed (albeit in a tiny 256 x 256 size) so I added the yellow leading edge strips to the skin and then some basic decals including yellow serial numbers based on the Hasegawa box art.

Leave it as it is and put it on a base with a fire truck and a couple of Land Rovers round it! 


That's not a bad idea actually, with the container detached and jammed under the fuselage, hmmmmmm........

And I have a catalogue of 1/72 fire engines and stuff from the recent show I did in S Wales too.


I am much looking forward to the HC6 when it appears.

What's meant to be wrong with the kit nose please?
