Vickers Valiant BK Mk 1

Scale: 1/72nd
Manufacturer: Airfix
Ref No: A11001
Material: IM
Modelled by: Richard A. Franks

One of my latest builds, this was done as a commission. Overall scheme is for XD818, although I appreciate that the anti-dazzle panel was not applied to Operation Grapple machines.
A nice kit, but it has some fit issues caused by the shape of some parts just not matching those they fix too, the upper/rear wing and fuselage joint being the worst.
I will build another, but as a PR version this time.
