5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent!!!!!!!!!!!!!
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...

1.0 out of 5 stars Diabolocal quality.
My daughter wanted to make this for her grandads 70th birthday and the one we found seemed too good to be true. It is the model of the aircraft they both own a part of, and it was made by Airfix. She was so excited when it came, and couldn't wait to start. However, when I opened it, I couldn't believe what I was seeing. This had clearly been no where near quality control...

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 ;)

4.0 out of 5 stars Great model - pity about the paints and brushes !!, 4 Oct 2014

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

"The spirit of Great Britain" wow what can i say but a truelly magnificent kit , great detail and the 1:72 scale makes it huge. A great buy at a reasonable cost from Amazon ... now waiting for the spitfire kit to arrive

Kit only just arrived - will not build just yet. First impressions are really positive. If you have built Airfix kits before and are not a small kid you should manage this. Kit is large and I think fantastic value as includes paint , brushes and small tube of glue. Does not include stand as far as I can see and in my experience they are very hard to find at this scale so will have to make one.
Update - kit went together well and looks great. Fit of parts good and very little filling required.
