1:72 scale model kit of the Avro Vulcan B.2 from Airfix.
As the Avro Vulcan entered squadron service with No.83 Squadron at RAF Waddington in July 1957, Britain now possessed the fastest nuclear capable bomber in the world. It seems strange to describe an aircraft which possessed such potential for untold destruction as Britain's most effective peace keeping asset, however, that is what the Vulcan turned out to be.
Throughout the Cold War, the Warsaw Pact nations were in no doubt that if the launched an attack against a NATO member country, the consequences of a retaliatory strike would be catastrophic. Without doubt, during the early years of its service career, nothing represented this doomsday scenario more effectively than the Avro Vulcan.
The Vulcan has been designed with the modeller in mind. The wings, historically in three pieces, now come in two to simplify and fortify your build.
