The Vulcan was designed in response to a specification issued in 1947; a four engined nuclear bomber was required as the growing menace of the Soviet Union made itself felt. Avro's chief designer, Roy Chadwick immediately began an unusual design based on a delta wing concept and a matter of months later, the design had been submitted and had won the contest (along with Handley Page's HP.80 design - later to become the Victor. The design was changed before the familiar Vulcan layout was settled on; fins on the wingtips became a single conventional fin, and the nose was extended along with the addition of a distinct fuselage section as opposed to the near-flying-wing idea originally envisaged. Tragically, Chadwick was killed in an air accident later in the year, but Stuart Davies, his assistant, survived the crash and continued development on the Avro Type 698 design, taking over as head of Avro's design team.

Mahogany wood. Wingspan 18 1/2 inches, Length 17 1/2 inches.

My first purchase from ScaleCraft and now I am about to bu a couple more. The Vulcan is well made and sturdy and looks great in my pub! My electrician actually knocked it to the floor and it survived with only minor damage. It was a lot heavier than I expected - which is a good thing in my opinion. Overall I am very happy with my Vulcan!
