The Avro Vulcan is a delta wing subsonic jet bomber that was operated by the Royal Air Force from 1953 until 1984. The Vulcan was part of the RAF's V bomber force, which fulfilled the role of nuclear deterrence against the Soviet Union during the Cold War. It was also used in a conventional bombing role during the Falklands conflict with Argentina. The last airworthy Vulcan, XH558 has been restored to flying condition by the 'Vulcan to the Sky' Trust after a number of years of effort and fundraising. The first post-restoration flight, which lasted 34 minutes took place on 18 October 2007. It is now used in display flights and commemoration of the employment of the aircraft in the Falklands Conflict.

I had heard some shortcomings of the kit from several reviews but found that it was actually incredibly easy to put together and took very little time. Not to mention the fact that the kit looks excellent and is very impressive in both size and detail. I would say with confidence that any hobbiest with a bit of experience behind them will have no trouble whatsoever.
Saying that, they will also most likely have the paints/brushes/glue before hand making the ones in this set extraneous. Those that do not may wish to invest in some extra as the very small amounts you receive in this set really won't be enough I'd say.
In summary, an excellent kit but probably not on ideal starting point for a newcomer to the hobby.

A simple enough kit to throw together, if you don't mind quite a few gaps and other ropey fit issues. A lot of work is required though if you want to produce a well finished model. Read morePublished 12 months ago by rampton uk
