Overview
 
Plastic model kit of the Handley Page Victor, a British jet-powered strategic bomber, developed and produced by the Handley Page Aircraft Company, which served during the Cold War. It was the third and final V-bomber to be operated by the Royal Air Force (RAF), developed as part of the United Kingdom's airborne nuclear deterrent. In 1968, it was retired from the nuclear mission following the discovery of fatigue cracks, which had been exacerbated by the RAF's adoption of a low-altitude flight profile to avoid interception.

Kit has 228 parts, detailed cockpit and cabin interior, optional (access door, ladder, cowling, bomb bay doors, bombs, drop tanks), radial engine disks, separate (flaps, aileron, rudder, wingtips), transparent (canopy, landing lights, wingtips), detailed wheel wells and optional undercarriage, optional (internal fuel tanks, reconnaissance and aerial refueling pod).

Decals and color painting guide for 3 aircraft: No.57 Squadron, RAF, Operation Black Buck, Ascension Island, May 1982; No.55 Squadron, RAF, Operation Granby, Desert Storm, Bahrain 1991 and 543 Squadron, RAF, Operation Attune, Lima Airport, Peru 1971 - includes stencil data, instrument panel and consoles.
