Product description

Take to the skies with the Revell Stearman PT-17 Model Plane Kit!

The four-engined Avro Lancaster was without doubt the most famous of all the RAF heavy bombers in World War II. From 1942 it formed the backbone of the night bombing offensives deep in Germany and gained its fame through the sinking of the Tirpitz and the destruction of the Möhne and Eder dam. 

The Lancaster was able to carry loads of up to 9,980 kg of bombs, the heaviest individual one being the "Grand Slam". It saw service up to 1945 in 68 RAF Bomber Command squadrons and flew over 156,000 sorties. Out of a total of 7,300 aircraft produced almost half were lost. Today, only two examples exist that are still airworthy – one in Great Britain, the other in Canada.

Decals are also included in this set with three RAF versions for a Avro Lancaster B.Mk.III, No. 100 Squadron, Royal Air Force, Elsham Wolds, April 1945 and an Avro Lancaster B.Mk.III, No. 9 Squadron, Royal Air Force, Bardney, 1945.

Revell Avro Lancaster Mk.I/Mk.III Model Plane Kit is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, accurate model. A great, accurate model of the iconic Avro Lancaster. Good level of detail, parts go together well with little filler required. Will look great when completed. Highly recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very comprehensive kit I previously owned this kit 10 years ago and was impressed by it then, unfortunately I didn't finish it and it got lost in a house move. It was still an itch that I had to scratch so I recently bought the kit again and I am mid way through the build. The mouldings are lovely and crisp and devoid of flash. Everything fits together with minimal seam lines. The kit offers options for an earlier Lanc and a later war aircraft. Even at this scale (1/72) parts are amazingly detailed. Although this is a large kit with lots of pieces, I still think it is within the grasp of intermediate builders provided they take a bit of time during the build. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality The product is great quality and fun to build, the instructions are clear and the box tells you any extras you need before starting such as the different paints you'll need. Great looking plane when completed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Fantastic model at an astonishing price. The most detailed lancaster at 1-72 scale on the market and nearly £10 cheaper than any alternative.
