  1. Hi all, we've had a long wait for a 1/72nd 'goldfish bowl' Canberra but now S&M, (and soon Micro-Mir) have come in with their renditions. It has several well-documented issues and apart from some errant panel lines, most have been dealt with here, the dimensional errors were beyond the remit of the article, (this one was built for last months issue of Airfix Model World so had to be built to a deadline). Must really thank the two Johns, Adams and Sheehan for their help. John A kindly donated the correct wheels from his Aeroclub range (kits are later style, ie for the B6), detailed Avon starter cartridge 'bullets, (kit has no detail) and replacement Mk2C bang seats and John S for some nose-gear mudguards, (The kit had none), a lovely Modeldecal sheet with the correct yellow/red hatched walkway stripes (kit ones were solid black), a superb camouflage colour reference guide, (kits diagram doesn't make sense and also has you place the walkways over the roundels instead of up to them) and of course the benefit of his extensive knowledge. Unfortunately, according to the two Johns, the overall dimensions aren't quite right, but I'll need to look into that before tackling another. Only one decal choice is offered but luckily it's a relatively well-documented airframe so references were easy to come by and besides there are loads of aftermarket sheets out there. I added quite a few bits and pieces of my own such as canopy heating elements, a lot of internal plumbing, rebuilt Avon intake vanes and compressor faces, nav/anti-collision lights, IFF aerials, UHF blade aerials, wingtip lights made from clear styrene rod, bomb aimers instrumentation and undercarriage hydraulic lines. Anyway, hope you like it. It was a fun kit to put together despite the issues and I plan to build (and correct) a few more. Cheers Melchie
