The Avro Vulcan bomber symbolised the pinnacle of British aerospace design and innovation in the late 40s and early 50s. The 698 Vulcan prototype VX770 flew for the first time on 30 August 1952 with further production variants in service until the mid 1980s. The last flying Vulcan was finally grounded in 2015 but remains as a "taxi-able" display model at Doncaster Sheffield Airport.


This kit is a laser-cut replica of the Skyleada Vulcan. Construction of the model from this kit uses the traditional method of "stick and tissue", that consists of a built up balsa wood skeleton (framework), covered with a tissue skin. (Some modellers may prefer to use a mylar under-covering for strength and lightness). The balsa frameworks are built over a plan that is printed at the exact scale of the model, which is in essence a real engineering drawing. Originally, the model was designed to be powered by a Jetex motor. These are no longer available although we are working on an electric ducted fan solution for the future. Free flight means just that - once the model is launched, it is on its own. It must follow a predetermined flight path established when the model is initially adjusted for flight or "trimmed". This type of traditional building technique and flying requires a degree of patience and skill, but is extremely rewarding.

    Nearly completed the Vulcan kit I purchased last year. Have thoroughly enjoyed building the kit and have been very impressed with the quality and fit of the pre cut parts. So much so eagerly awaiting the arrival of the SE5. Thanks for making the kits available again.
