XH558, The Display Vulcan, is now flying again in the UK.
I decided to depict 558 during its operational period with 27 Sqdn, in MRR role, at RAF Scampton with the Waddington Wing, between 1973 and ‘82.
558 is on the ORP and is about to do a 4-engine start and roll within 2 minutes.
The Vulcan, crews and equipment are painted in acrylic and the background in water colour on paper.
LATE NOTE added 01/01/2009.
I have just been informed that I should of had a Battery Start Trailer with 4 leads, one for each engine for a quick start.!! (Not a generator) Thanks JohnB, ex BE.
Squadron badges can be added on the wider bottom mount margin.
I’ll show this later.
