Dragon Models continues to issue kits related to the 30th anniversary of the Falklands War. This time Jessica Cooper looks in the box of the 1/200 Avro Vulcan.

Hi, Jessica. JT here. Say, isn't image six a Victor? The Vulcan does have a nice cockpit for it size. But with canopy on you will barely see anything. I dry fitted the cockpit on my Great White, and, well, there's just a hint of something there. Anyway, all the best.
Happy Gluing, JT

No, that's a look up the Vulcan's tailpipes and out the intake.
Considering that I have several 1/144 kits with no cockpit at all, having this much detail at 1/200 is phenomenal.

Ahhh, yes. Now I see it. And you're right: considering the scale, including some kind of cockpit was a "good show" by Dragon. I wonder if they'll do the other Vs?
