Lancaster B.lll Special, Op Chastise 1943.


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

Here is my recently completed 1/72 Airfix Lancaster B.III Special of 617 Squadron 'The Dambusters'. ED932,  AJ-G, was the mount of Wing Commander Guy Gibson, VC, DSO & Bar, DFC & Bar for Operation Chastise on the night of 16/17th May 1943.

 

Extras used included an AML camouflage mask along with an Eduard canopy mask and interior etch set. Paints are a mixture of MRP and Tamiya. This kit proved to be a bit of nightmare for me, with numerous things going wrong. Despite that, I'm happy with how it turned out. The build thread is here

Thanks chaps.

Very nicely done. One suggestion would be to replace the Queens Crown squadron patch with a WW2 Kings Crown one.

Thanks mate! I'm not too worried about the patch, it came from a box of patches in the store :lol:
