Massive kit from Airfix of the Avro Vulcan B Mk.2 which is issued as a Falklands Gift Set to commemorate the 25th Anniversary of the Falklands War.

This Gift Set includes 15 paints, a paint brush and glue.

The Avro Vulcan was Britain's major nuclear deterrent bomber for over 25 years. The Vulcan was later adapted for low-level strike missions and it was in this role that it is now remembered as, in 1982, a lone Vulcan bombed the runways of Port Stanley airfield in the Falkland Islands. This raid was historic in that it was the longest ever bombing raid which required numerous in-flight refuelling operations.

This large kit includes markings for the following aircraft:

  • XH558, Vulcan Display Flight, RAF Waddington, 1992.
  • XH562, No.9 Squadron, RAF, 1977.
  • XM607, No.44 Squadron, RAF, August 1982.
  • XL321, No.617 Squadron, 1963. (with Blue Steel bomb).

This kit has been discontinued and replaced by AF50097
