GWH 1/144 scale Avro Vulcan B.2

By Phil Pignataro
Published: May 6, 2013

I have been hoping for a 1/144 scale plastic model kit of the Avro Vulcan B.2 — and, now, G.W.H., formerly Great Wall Hobby, has released a great one. 

The kit, molded in light gray plastic, has 74 pieces, finely recessed panel lines, and two clear parts for the canopy. There are even two tiny pilot figures and a three-piece display stand. Instructions are a four-page foldout affair with a brief history and a parts map. A separate, full-color foldout provides scale drawings of the Vulcan. The decal sheet offers markings for two bombers of the 1982 Falklands War. Color suggestions are for Gunze Sangyo Mr. Color paints. Captions on the instructions and paint/decal guide are in Chinese, but the diagrams are clear.
