Item DescriptionWithin the ranks of the Royal Air Force (RAF), the Avro Vulcan played an important role as a strategic bomber from 1953-84. For more than 30 years during the height of the Cold War, this aircraft armed with nuclear bombs was ready to deter foreign nations from attacking Great Britain. Operated by the RAF’s V-bomber force, the Vulcan was a delta-wing design that flew at subsonic speeds. A total of 134 Vulcans were manufactured, with the second tranche known as the B.2 being the most common. The B.2 featured larger and thinner wings, while a greater fuel capacity offered a cruising range of 7,400km. It also had improved equipment such as electronics and radar.
This Dragon Warbirds of the Avro Vulcan B.2 is precisely made to 1/200 scale. The panel lines are sharply scribed, including both the top and bottom surfaces of the large wings. The aircraft is beautifully painted in a striking RAF camouflage scheme, and it carries the markings of a bomber from No. 27 Squadron in the 1974 timeframe. This unit operated out of RAF Scampton in Lincolnshire, and it flew the Vulcan B.2 between 1961 and 1982. This impressive Warbirds model commemorates the important role the Vulcan played in the Cold War.
