Garden shed gets Vulcan XH558 paint scheme!

While most of us were basking in the sunshine and enjoying the easing of lockdown restrictions over the Bank Holiday weekend, the same cannot be said for Chris Walkeden. Instead, he was focussing his efforts on something much more exciting (well, we think so anyway). 

Chris, of Northamptonshire, spent the weekend giving his shed a brand new livery… that of well known and well-loved Avro Vulcan XH558, nonetheless. As an avid fan of the Vulcan, and of his immaculate garden, he revealed that the idea to spruce up his shed came from his love of air shows and, in particular, his love of the V-bomber. 

“My wife bought me a tour around the Vulcan for my 51st,” Chris told us. When asked if his wife would mind looking out of the window every day to cast eye over his artistic venture, he simply responded: “Well, she may have dominance regarding the house décor – but the shed is mine!” 

The statement piece will certainly be the focal point for the garden now! We wonder if he takes commissions…
