1/144 Vickers Valiant B Mk.I - Amercom

1/144 Vickers Valiant B Mk.I - Amercom
Well now, you wait for years dreaming of the V-Bomber fleet and then they come flying at you from all angles.......

First of the V-Bombers to drop bombs in anger, first of the v-bombers to drop an atomic bomb (testing) and subsequently the first operation in flight refueling tankers...

And if you wish to recreated a classic cold war image of a V-Bomber Force airfield surrounded by Bloodhound SAMs (you will make Matti's day!)

In case you need reminding of the history of this fine looking aircraft:

The sole surviving example can be found here at RAF Cosford (somewhere I have photos!)

It's not on the main Amercom Website yet, but it should show here soon:
Thanks to the Miniwojna Blogspot for the image.
