Lancaster Rear Turret

Dear All,

 

Am I correct in thinking that the original standard FN20  4 gun turret in the Lanc was at some point replaced by a similar one later in the war that was lighter but otherwise carried the same armament and looked very similar? I'm sure I read some where that PA474,the 'BoB' Lanc, has this later mod version, always assuming it ever existed? In 72nd scale the difference, if any would be undetectable, but just interested from the point of historical accuracy as to whether this upgrade ever happened or have I just been mislead?

 

Kind Regards

Colin.

Yes. It was the FN120. Other than being lighter I can’t recall any other differences off hand. Away from my library at the moment.

 

Edit: And a better heating system!
