Product description

The Avro Lancaster was the most famous RAF heavy bomber of the 2nd World War andwent into service in 1942. More than 7,300 of these machines were built for RAF Bomber Command. One of the most important RAF targets was the destruction of the Ruhr dams that supplied important industrial installations with power.

In order to accurately attack such robust targets as dams or barrages a rotating bomb wasdeveloped which was better known as the bouncing bomb. For this attack a special new unit was set up, 617 Squadron under the command of Wing Commander Guy Gibson. Code named Operation Chastise this raid took place with 19 Lancaster bombers on the night of 16th to 17th May 1943. The first two dams, Möhne and Eder, were successfully destroyed, whereas the other two, Ennepe andSorpe withstood the attack.

Revell Avro Lancaster DAMBUSTERS Model Kit 1:72 is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Revell Dambuster kit. This kit box nr 04295 was released in 2009 following the new tool Lancaster released in 2008 box nr 04300. When the Lancaster BI/BIII was released it one of the best kits around with panel line detail, engine detail, different props for each version. The Dambuster is nearly the same kit but has extra parts for the Dambuster but leaves the bombs and doors out which are not needed. For the detail accurate modeller the wheels are the incorrect shape and the main wing dihedral is slightly incorrect. However for many this will not be noticed or even cared for. The kit builds up into a nice looking model. I would suggest this as a gift or one for the stash but not a first time build kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great alignment Avro Lancaster in 1:72 by revell is a high quality and detailed model accurate to the prototype. Kit alignment is to a high standard. Not for beginners!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has great features I've wanted a hobby for a while, I work full time and have a busy household so finding some me time is just what is needed. I've got as far as opening the box and having a look but it looks like it has great features, the only one thing holding me back is I am still yet to purchase the paint and glue as unfortunately it does not come with the set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great kit A well detailed kit for 1/72 scale. All parts were still attached to the sprue's . Well detailed decals. Goes together without any major issues & looks great when finished.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really nice kit!!!!! Bought this as a gift for my father, really nice kit, however isnt that clear about what is included within the kit. Had to buy the glue, paints etc in addition to the kit in order for him to be able to build it. Like I said nice kit, just shame it is just the parts given the price
