    Hi Chaps

    Was browsing the LHS today (as you do), and noticed a 1/200 (or possibly 1/220) scale Vulcan by Dragon. I love Vulcans, but would be a single man if I bought a 1/72 edition :oops: This smaller offering seems ideal for my limited space, and I know Dragon are a very reputable company, but the retail price was a shade over £20. Has anyone built one of these, and is it worth the investment?

    TIA

    Not sure mate, especially as it's only just been released. The price seems a tad high ( or rip off) for the scale though.
    Maybe wait until some reviews (if any) appear in the mags or on the net?

    Thanks Bob 8) I gathered from the feature panels on the box edge that the fuselage is fairly simple. The price is a bit offputting, but the level of detail and the relative rarity of the subject does make me think about pulling the wallet out. I might sit it out a while and keep an eye on eBay. I don't suspect they will be going cheap any time soon though...
