After going to the Odeon Last week to watch the Film and  explaining to my 10yr old twins about the the Dambusters , one of them said let's build a jet and paint it as a Dambusters Lancaster!!

So here it is...a mix of Decals and we really had fun doing this...

Fantastic idea - looks good in that scheme too.

 

Which kit is it?

Hi. It's the Hasegawa kit. 😊

Fair one- I’m surprised they never did this actually. It looks great and you’ve made a good job of it.

The Tonka looks great! Ever thought of sending a pic to the MoD/RAF? Would make a stunning retirement scheme for the real thing

The issue is that 617sqn has stopped flying the Tornado, it is about to become the first operational squadron for the F-35 in the RAF. Although I do fancy seeing a F-35 in a similar scheme in the future.

Understand 617 has gone F35 but, when the Tonka fleet departs our skies, surely such an impotant machine could be painted in all the old squadron colours of those that flew them???
