The builder has options of posable crew hatches, separate control surfaces, different noses, and tails. The decal options are for all-white aircraft used in the `50s era nuclear tests, an all-white aircraft model of an aircraft assigned to an operational squadron, the second prototype in overall aluminum, and, this reviewers favorite, a RAF camouflaged aircraft from the 1963 period. These four types cover the Valiant's operation life of aircraft in service.
The aircraft interior includes the upper and lower decks with crew seats, controls, and - best of all - decal panels. The seat have molded on seat belts.
The models fits well together and it is engineered with tabs to make assembly easy. The cabin windows fit well and there is no need for filler. The landing gear wells have simulated rib detail and fit great. Note, in a modern Airfix kit the days of an empty wheel well are gone.
I liked the touch of the bomb bay which can be built closed, with two dozen one-thousand pound bombs (far better than the B-47 of the same era), or a model of a nuclear bomb. The instructions are precise about what aircraft goes with what marking and bomb loads. Don't mix `em up or you'll end up with a nuclear armed strike aircraft with decals from a regular armed bomber aircraft.
This large model goes together like clockwork and matches my favorite model maker, Tamiya, for accuracy, fit and finish. Do not forget to add weight to the aircraft front or you'll end up with a tail sitter. I installed two .49 caliber lead balls, about an ounce of weight, to have the aircraft set on the nose. Airfix did a good job on the landing gear and it's beefy enough to take the weight. Note, this isn't like the Trumpeteer F-105 model that you have to buy metal after-market landing gear to have it carry the heavy weight of the model. The Airfix engineers made a big model with the strength to take the weight.
The wings go right on the fuselage correctly and has the correct anhedral (wing droop). Now, you'll run into a fit problem with the engine inlets in the wings. This problem seems to run through all the model makers from Tamiya to Monogram. But this is just annoying so you'll have to put up with it as well as possible. Additionally, there is a little problem with the exhaust fairing fit to the wing. Once again this was not enough to drop a star. I would deduct .25 of a star for those two problems.
I painted my aircraft with Testor's flat white, put on the excellent decals which took the better part of two evenings, and then over sprayed the Testor's semi-gloss clear coat It gives the aircraft a semi-sheen and seals in the decals from decay. Few things I dislike more is putting in a great bit of effort into a model and then seeing the decals come off a few years later. Anyway, the Vickers Valiant spent the majority of their life in white paint and I wanted to model a typical British bomber aircraft from the `50s.
I spent well over 80 hours assembling, masking and painting this aircraft. That is a little longer than average but a good job. It's one of the best models made by Airfix. One can build one of four versions of an aircraft that was perhaps one of the best early heavy jet bombers. While the Valiant was not as fast as the B-47 it was far more useful in a multi-mission roles, didn't have the vicious flying characteristics, and the traditional bomber cockpit was far easier for the comfort of the crew. If defense cutbacks didn't hit Britain in the mid-60s then the Valiant would have been given new wing spars and seen service well into the 70s. It was a superior design and Arfix has made an excellent model of a pioneering aircraft.
Hint, there are lots of modelers who would love this for a Christmas or Birthday present.
