That's one big wing! 1/48 RB.57F

Recommended Posts

Hi All

This my 1/48 Airfix and scratch built RB.57F, like the real GD RB.57F this doesn't contain much Canberra, much of what you see is scratch built from various domestic items, a full WIP can be found here. Big wing build

Okay, was it a case of take set of Canberra wheels then scratch build a RB.57F on top of them? :whistle:  Very impressive model. :worthy:

Superb, John. I remember seeing the line of these at MASDC is 1979. An impressive machine. A very nice and accomplished build.

What can I say, John? Amazing model! Without a doubt, the highest-performing bathroom fixtures in the history of model building! You are Canberra Man, not  Kid! You should be proud of this one.

Pretty much Bob, just like the real thing, that's why she's not actually a Canberra any more.

Yes she was there, taking up the space on the table.

Thanks Martin, I wish I'd seen one, perhaps one day the next time one of the NASA birds comes to the Hall

Thanks Bill, it's been a long road but that's the missing link sorted now. Just the B.57C now to complete the set.
