Almost done. I spent the last four days painting two coats of Model master flat white as a base coat, followed by two coats of Sovereign ColorCoats 'Anti-Flash White'. I added Al-Clad glosscoat and am ready for decals.

Wow, Chuck, that is one of the nicest Victors I've seen for a while. It's still a futuristic looking aircraft and anti-flash white is the scheme for it IMHO.

Impressive build. Looks like the cockpit "cover" had some fit issues, hope none of the spray got into that superb cockpit.

You can blame photobucket. They decided that I would need to pay $399 up front to link pictures to this site. $399 is a little steep for linking around 20 pictures a year to one website so I decided to switch to Picture Trail. I'm switching to their site so I should be able to replace the pic soon.

Thanks. There was a little spray but not much. Compare to the Vulcan, you can see a lot of the Victor's cockpit.

Excellent! I hope that all the other PB users vote with their feet and find alternative hosting sites.

I sat in Midlands Air Museum's Vulcan a couple of Sundays back and there isn't a massive amount to see OUT of the windows, let alone IN!!. :lol: :lol:
