1/72 H202-250 Revell Avro Dam Buster Lancaster with Secret Bomb
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Sealed Mint
Still factory sealed. Dated 1971, but this is the softbox issue from later in the 1970s. The Dam Busters squadron was famous for its daring raids on three German dams on May 16, 1943. Carrying the special Barnes Wallis-designed bombs, the Lancasters flew very low over the water in the face of heavy flak to drop the rotating bombs perfectly. Many did not return. The bombs did perform as promised, first skipping over the water, hitting the dam, then rolling down 30 feet before exploding with tremendous force. In an airburst, these bombs would not have damaged the dams, but since water is incompressible, the dams were breached.
