(The Avro Vulcan (later Hawker Siddeley Vulcan from July 1963) is a jet-powered, tailless, delta-wing, high-altitude, strategic bomber, which was operated by the Royal Air Force (RAF) from 1956 until 1984. Aircraft manufacturer A.V. Roe and Company (Avro) designed the Vulcan in response to Specification B.35/46. Of the three V bombers produced, the Vulcan was considered the most technically advanced, hence the riskiest option. Several reduced-scale aircraft, designated Avro 707s, were produced to test and refine the delta-wing design principles). This handmade model is 19 cm high, 32 cm long and 31 ½ cm in width. It has been intricately made from mahogany and then polished and sealed. It stands on a lovely machined metal base which has been chromed, which sets off the colour of the wood really well. The stand is connected to the base of the aircraft by two bolts and the base of the stand is covered in black velvet to stop surface scratches. This piece would look good on a desk in a study, in a man cave or on a display shelf. The price for this nod to a historical marvel includes UK delivery. 20789.
