Thanks for the comments chaps.

Paddy Boy, here are some more just for you.

A visit to NAM this Tuesday allowed a good look at XM594. I had never noticed the intake between the engines and the fuselage before - do you know what it's for? Certainly not on the 1/72 Vulcan!

All the best,

That hole is the boundary layer bleed air duct, I think there is an outlet for it somewhere on the top surface where the wings join the fuselage.

And there's plenty more where that came from!
