This is an injection-plastic jet aircraft model kit.

From the manufacturer:

The Handley Page (HP) Victor was a jet-powered, strategic bomber which, alongside the other "V" bombers, the Avro Vulcan and Vickers Valiant, formed an essential part of Britain's nuclear deterrent during the early part of the Cold War. The Victor was designed to carry out long-range, low-altitude attacks, but was later relegated to an aerial refeulling role when it was no longer deemed effective as a strategic bomber.

Subject to the RAF's requirements for greater tactical maneuverability and a higher ceiling, the B.2 variant with much more powerful Rolls Royce Conway engines was developed in 1959. Thirty-four were produced in total, of which several were later converted for reconnaissance and aerial refuelling purposes.

Completed model measures 486mm long with a 508mm wingspan.
