    Another 'project-in-a-day' from me.

    Finished basically, so I'm just looking for faults, and maybe adding additional details.. :)

    Looks pretty decent but I think a camo scheme could do. NMF looks kinda weird on the Vulcan. Anyway, good job Clave. :thumbleft:

    Thanks :)

    It's actually 'anti-flash white' which was standard for the nuclear-equipped V-Bombers of the time.

    They were camouflaged and upgraded when they switched roles to using conventional weapons.

    I just realised that I missed off the windscreen wipers - so that's one thing to fix next time...

    I have since found out that the B1s only had dark markings... :eek:

    Fixes:

    Markings - now standard dark type
    Fin - changed black area.
    Serial number font - changed
    Wipers - added
    Bomb-aiming position - reduced overlap.
    Canopy - fixed lifting hole - reference drawing wrong.
    Intakes - fixed - again reference drawing showing B2 inlets on B1 drawing...
    Moved nose window.

    Great work Clave, looking forward to seeing one of the conventional bomber versions as well with the camo.

    Yep, I will definitely be converting/drawing the B1A and B2 versions once I am happy with this one.

    Just got some markings to sort out on the nose now and it should be done... :)

    Final revisions (I hope)

    Changed the dark areas on the spine and fin (think they a radar/radio related, not sure)
    Added wing roundel
    Added nose markings for rescue and first aid stuff (not that they can be seen much)
