I've a feeling the jet Blue Steel intakes were cut up Hunter tanks.

Nice work and I'm glad to see it got finshed and justice was done.

Impressive beast. Very well done.
Why old kit? There is a newer one?
Owing to the current financial difficulties, the light at the end of the tunnel will be turned off until further notice.

Airfix announced a new tool just before Telford - they had no choice really, as some numpty leaked it.

I'm waiting for the inevitable V bomber gift set....  Probably in their new "grounds for divorce" range.

TBH, we've needed a new tool Vulcanfor a good ten years and apparently recent releases from the old tool are well nigh unbuildable.

Under the original plan the new Vulcan was due out last 1/4 this year, but I suspect that'll be wishful thinking by now.
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! :)

Regards
Kit

Cheers mate. Glad to finally put it to good use.

I have lost count of the amount of people who saw this one and thought it was the new kit.

If you see it before 2023 I think you'll be lucky.
