Default Corgi's New Catalog Is Out

Has anyone noticed? The big news is the long planned Vulcan in 1:72nd plus a B-17, a Dam Buster Lanc, several BF-109G-6s, a Merlin engined Wellington, a Blenheim, a Defiant, a Mosquito, and other stuff. Pictures are up on the official Corgi website and better ones are posted on Corgi's Facebook pages. Here's a pre-pro shot of the Vulcan:

Gonna be a big model...with a big price tag, no doubt. I love the Vulcan, but I'll have to see what they want for it...otherwise, my 1/144 and 1/200 versions will have to do. I want the Welly, for sure though.

I did some calculations based on the dimesions for a Vulcan bomber. Wingspan 30.3 metres so in 1:72 scale that is 421mm or 16.57 inches. Fuselage length 29.59 metres so in 1:72 that is 411 mm or 16.18 inches.

It's going to be big - very big

This will give you an idea how big is the vulcan in relation to the already-big lancaster

I think you may have calculated the B1 variant. This B2 variant model will be bigger still with a wingspan of appx. 18.5" and length (with probe) of about 17.6". Yes, very big.
