Bachmann has released its new Vulcan B2 kit in 1/144 scale
Following the success of its quarterly British Railway Announcements which were established at the start of 2020, Bachmann Europe Plc today unveiled its first ever Model, Collect, Create (MCC) Announcements. Showcasing items from its extensive portfolio of model and hobby brands, the MCC Announcements will provide a quarterly update on new plastic kits, toys and collectables available from Bachmann stockists in the UK, and around the world. As with British Railway Announcements, new items unveiled in the MCC Announcements are due to arrive with Bachmann stockists over the course of the next three months.
Bachmann has released its next exclusive Easy Model aircraft as part of its Spring 2021 MCC Announcements. Available exclusively from Bachmann stockists in the UK and around the world, the new model depicts the Vulcan B2 in 1/144 scale. Modelled on XM607 which is now preserved at RAF Waddington, this Vulcan played a pivotal role during the Falklands War, successfully completing the first Operation Black Buck sortie, the RAF’s most daring attack since Operation Chastise – the Dambusters raid in World War Two.
XM607 was piloted by Martin Withers during the first Black Buck sortie. Martin would go on to be Chief Pilot of the Vulcan To The Sky Trust’s XH558 and was at the controls for the final flight of XH558 in 2015.
The Vulcan B2 is the next Bachmann-exclusive aircraft to be produced by Easy Model and the first to be produced in 1/144 scale. A series of 1/72 scale models is already available from Bachmann stockists including the Eurofighter Typhoon, F-15E Strike Eagle and a collection of five aircraft which commemorate D-Day. All Easy Models are supplied fully assembled and painted and include a display stand.
With prices starting at £29.99, each of the 11 kits are in stock in the UK ready to be
dispatched to Bachmann stockists from the week commencing Monday 15th March 2021.
