Following on from the popular ‘Avro Lancaster Mk 1 S-Sugar’ plastic kit, HK Models have announced the release of a Dambusters version of the Lancaster and we are expecting to see delivery in the UK in June 2019.
Designed and built by AV Roe & Co, powered by four Rolls-Royce Merlin engines, the Lancaster began operations in March 1942 and with its superior speed, height and range was the most efficient RAF bomber of the Second World War. The Lancaster was chosen to equip 617 Squadron and was modified to carry the Upkeep bouncing bomb designed by Barnes Wallace for Operation Chastise.
• New tooled parts for Upkeep bouncing bomb used in Operation Chastise dam raid in May 1943
• Markings for Lancaster B Mk III Special ED932/AJ-G of 617 Squadron RAF Scampton
