Revell Avro Lancaster DAMBUSTERS Model Kit 1:72

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from this product is really good This product was exactly what I was looking for. I have always liked the film and the story of the dam busters. The model is really good, there are intricate parts on it, it requires quite a high skill level but with patience you can make a really impressive model of the dam busters Avro Lancaster. It is a well moulded model with really good instructions . There are three different fleet markings from 617 squadron, they are wing Cmdr. Guy Gibson, DSO DFC, Flight Sargent K W Brown , and Flight Lt H B Martin . Altogether a very good model .

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excelent price for a high quality Kit Revell kits have excelled themselves with this version of this famous aircraft. the detail is good and the kit goes together very well with no remedial work needed. the end product is certainly a good representation of the real thing. The only warning I would mention is that because this kit is so well detailed, the main undercarriage is quite fragile and needs to be assembled carefully as the joints are very small so do not have a lot of strength in them., I would not recommend it for a beginner as this area does require some patience and care especially with the moving parts such as the propellers wheels and turrets. Excellent model all round

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic kit I built a model Lancaster as a kid but never painted it up.I always wanted a re-match and this time to do it properly .The Revell kit fits the bill nicely coming in at slightly cheaper than Airfix and waaaay cheaper than Tamiya ,without compromising quality.Revell has their own brand paint-line,so matching colours is a breeze.(no harm intended to Airfix,the price difference is negligible, but I've had some really nice Revell kits).All in all I'm very pleased with the kit and I got it just in time before the C-19 lock-down!
