Currently after a nosegear (not the wheels) for an Airfix Vulcan. 

God help me, but I started the second one that was in the box and I think the nosegear was stolen for the Shackleton AEW3.

Currently after Modeldecal sheet 70, antiflash Vulcans on it, but I'm specifically after the 230 OCU markings but happy to take the whole sheet.

Also after Vulcan wrecks, spares and or wreckage from the 1980s Airfix tooling.

No need for Modeldecal sheet 70 - the marking I was after is on one of the Printscale Vulcan sheets, which I'd bought for a serial (XM604), so this is a bonus result.

Still after any Vulcan spares or wrecks.

Has my parcel arrived yet Lee?
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Yes, arrived either today or yesterday, according to the postal secretary.  Didn't expect that Victor fuselage to be assembled or so heavy!  May actually try and finish it as a Blue Steel machine, as I've got the relevant bits in a Victor box and use that fuselage for my Trader build.

Phew, I was wondering if it had got lost. Glad it's there.  :thumbsup:

The Blue Steel one may keep the shorter wings - blah, blah, fatigue, better at lower level before popping up for launch, undefined engineering reason - and is likely to go in a late 70s scheme, DSG/DG over LAG with a jet Blue Steel.  I've enough of them to play with.

Currently after a couple of sets of Vulcan undercarriage, a Vulcan canopy.

But also in the market for Vulcan wrecks to tart up, even if they go in flight.

Did a rummage yesterday and found the front undercarriage for 1/72 airfix Vulcan. Not sure about the main gear legs. Will search again.

Also have a Vulcan canopy available.

PM me if interested.

Wooksta, regarding the 545F2.  I used to have a three view of the production 545, and an article using a mix of Swift and F-86D kits.  However, they have disappeared from my hard drive, my bookmarks, and the internet and any paper references I may have had.   Like that movie where the Beatles never existed.   Any help out there?
The Leng Plateau is lovely this time of year

There's a three view in Derek Wood's Project cancelled.  This thread on Secret projects might help, but you have to be a member to see graphics.

Looks to have both noses and missile pylon locations - too late for my F1 build!

This one gives a 3 view for the type 554 two seat trainer
