1/144th.

And we, till now unmatched in ill,
Must leave successors more corrupted still."

I'm not convinced its 1/144 - if it is, its not a very good kit.

The Great Walll Hobby (GWH) / Pit-Road Vulcan is more detailed than this, even the Cyber Hobby 1/200 Vulcan is better than this.

Trumpeter do a range of 1/350 (in which case this would be a good 1/350)

Problems with this kit is the the lack of detail:
 - the wheel wells are sparse empty boxes,
-  the undercarriage is poorly defined,
-  there is no crew access door forward of the nose gear

As i said, if it ends up being 1/144, it will be a shame...

While it's pretty cool they're carrying on with the 1/144 bombers, WHERE'S THE BLEEDIN BACKFIRE?  :icon_twisted: They'd have the market cornered on decent Tu-22Ms. Instead they choose something done by a competititor not too long ago. Is it more about hurting the fompetitor's sales? Does that make sense for somehing as esoteric as 1/144 Cold War bombers? Wouldn't it make more sense to release a Backfire? Surely a sizeable  portion (most?) of the Vulcan market potential has already been harvested by Great Wall/Pit-Road.
 
Either way... hooray for more 144! :icon_beer:
Cheers,
