Four Microfan Vulcan

Inspired by the work of Jetset44 (Steve) & having built two F-15`s & two Grippens I thought I would try to make a four jet Vulcan the same size as my 72" Axi pusher but handlaunched.Thanks to Bob Partingtons amazing handlaunch it has successfully flown. I will post pics of the build.
Terry.

I Used the same plans as for my pusher from Paul Telco of South Herts Models. These are for a 60 Pusher I just modified the build to suit Depron & used the bulkheads Ribs & General outlines.
I started by cutting a building base which runs through the wing root centre line. I then built the upper part on this lightening as I went.
