Designed and built by Alan Walker this is an 1/11th scale Class I scale model

of the Vulcan. It took 4 years to complete, and features an accurate airfoil including an undercambered leading edge section. Alan used the B.2 Vulcan based at Bruntingthorpe in Leicestershire to ensure complete accuracy of the model. The picture on the right gives some idea of the amount of detailing on this model

One of the reasons for the 10 channels and 24 servos is the servo operated parachute release system.

Another is the fully sequenced electronically controlled retract system

Also featured here is the original Academy Trust Vulcan, using pulse jets. Roy Lever is probably the only man in the world to have two 10 foot span Vulcans in his possession. Both can be seen at Megamodels. Roy’s interest in the Vulcans goes back many years to when he was chairman of Tyldesley MFC, and along with Terry Hamilton he flew 12-bladed ducted fan jets.
