Excellent model and easy to make although the paints and brushes supplied are woefully inadequate for this model , the paints are watery and in such small quantities to be laughable for a model of this size. The best thing to do is to buy oil-based enamel paints and decent size brushes or you'll not be able to complete your project. Once completed the problems with the paint and brushes are forgotten when you have a model worthy of the hours spent assembling it.

If you're buying this then it's safe to say you know what you are getting. What was amazing was the item turned up after a day! Very, very quick dispatch and a bargain price! This is a good model of a very imposing aircraft that holds an important place in history made by the legend that is Airfix. Get your kids off the XBox and Playstation, sit them down and build this with them (or any model kit with them)!

the vulcan is a cool, Big and fun kit. it is reasonably good value. recomended for experienced modelers. some use of filler is needed for the wings but overall gives good finished results ;)

A very good model kit, the detail was excellent, also the unit pieces. It made an outstanding model. Thank you.

My dad loves the Vulcan bomber so when I saw this I had to get it...

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.

The venerable Airfix kit re-released. I'm pleased to say that the kit still has the blue steel missile. The kit was purchased at a reasonable price so it's worth spending extra money on upgrades. All in all a happy purchase.

This is a big model, but some of the parts are tiny. It says in the instructions "Not suitable for children under 36 months." - It took me two hours just to build the landing gear!

My husband loved it and found it fun to do. I would recommend this to people who are interested in airfix but haven't had much experience doing it.

Really glad that Airfix re-issued this kit . Thoroughly enjoyed building it in the 1980s and thoroughly enjoyed re-aquainting myself with this old friend building again in the last year . Being an experienced modeller I was not too concearned with the inclusion of paint/glue but see its advantage for the newcomer . Rather than complete in the low-level bombing camouflaged finish , provided for by the kit , I completed my model as a nuclear strike force bomber of the 1960s in overall anti-radiation white finish with aftermarket decals . A well-detailed kit that is a pleasure to build and a stunning model once finished .

Bought it as a present for my cousin 80 who made a balsa model of the same bomber when I was nine. Much bigger model than I expected. And never opened it. I do hope he enjoyed it.
