Hi buddy, I have that Kits World 3d instruments kit for my Vulcan. Did you put them on as decals, or did you just cut them out and glue on with superglue?

andrew - definately require some sort of glue - seems like there is no adhesive at all , unlike what the kitsworld website says ( beware they come off the backing sheet in seconds ) i used pva for the instruments but ended up using a slow cure ca for the belts ... also there are no instructions on how the belts are supposed to go on ... check references ( or just make it up as you go like me ) ...

Thanks for the info Bill. I will probably just cut them out and glue them on when I do my Vulcan. As far as belts go. All I know is the lap belts on the ejection seats are blue. I may not even put the belts on. I am holding out on building mine. Waiting to see if more after market stuff comes out. A set of pylons and stuff to do XM607 would be good. Or some pylons with Shrike missiles.

andrew - i stole the pylons and alq-121 ecm pod from my airfix raf buccaneer for xm607 - i'm doing first mission so don't need the shrikes . pylons fit perfectly after after drilling one hole as they're shorter

Ah but Bill. The pylons will be wrong. They were specific to the Vulcan. Not a standard pylon. They were produced by the workshops section at RAF Waddington, specifically for Blackbuck.

Andrew - very true . Made from steel found around the base apparently for the shrikes . But they will be close enough for me . Going by the sprues - airfix have another release planned- it looks like one corner of one sprue has been removed from the injection plan when made . Maybe it will have something for the Falkland campaign

That's staggeringly good work on the cockpit. It's a shame it'll all be hidden.
