Product description

Take to the skies with the Airfix Avro Vulcan B Mk2 XH558 Model Kit.

XH558 was the last Vulcan to leave RAF service, flying on from 1986 to 1993 as the single RAF display Vulcan, a career of three years. Her final flight was on 23rd March 1993 to Bruntingthorpe Aerodrome in Leicestershire, having been sold off by the Ministry of Defence. In 1997, a small team headed by Dr Robert Pleming started to put together an audacious plan to return her to flight, but it was clear from the start that the project would be technically challenging and enormously expensive.

Never deterred, the team set off down the path that led to XH558's return to the air. Finally, 14 years after its last service flight and with over £7 million spent, Vulcan XH558 roared into the air again on Thursday 18th October 2007, a perfect day for flying, an unforgettable day for the Vulcan to the Sky team.

£1 from the sale of this product will be donated to the Vulcan to the Sky Trust.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb model, just what I'd been looking for The model AVRO Vulcan was well priced. I've priced it locally and reckon I have bargain! Not yet fully built but a great project for dull evenings. Now that the real thing has been decommissioned from flight it's good to have a model of the actual 'plane. I've been looking out for this for some time and jumped at the chance to buy when I saw it in your Hampreston Branch.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very poor I bought this model as I am quite a fan of the Vulcan. I was very disappointed with this model pieces missing and quality of the model was very poor. I would not recommend this model to anyone.
