The flourishing Avro Heritage Museum, located in Woodford, Cheshire, has revealed its largest renovation project, the Avro Vulcan XM603, to the media and public. The heritage museum opened its doors on October 8th 2015, with the Avro Vulcan XM603 being one of the museum’s key attractions in serious need of refurbishment. With the teamwork of enthusiastic volunteers and kind donations, including paint donated by HMG, the lengthy project is now complete, with the Vulcan sporting the same iconic livery as when it was first manufactured in 1963.
HMG Paints equipped the volunteers with a coatings system to comply with the original specification of the original drawings. To achieve this the products used included HMG’s anticorrosive BDX primer, followed by Coach Enamel, which is an ultrahigh-gloss top coat, combined with excellent water resistance and extensive exterior durability and toughness. Dave Pierce, the project leader for the museum, could not thank HMG enough “to have such fantastic support with the donation of almost 500 litres of paint and materials. Without HMG this would not have been possible”
