1/72 H202 Revell Avro Lancaster Dam Buster - Japan Issue - RAF ED932/G - ED910/G - ED934/G - ED937/G
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: VG
Rare 1974 Revell of Japan hardbox issue with dramatic artwork unique to this issue. Like most Revel of Japan issue, this one has decals for several aircraft - in this case, four. Kit is molded in black and clear and features movable elevators, ailerons and wing flaps, retractable landing gear, rotating turrets, wheels and props, crew of four, special fuselage for 'Dam Busters' configuration and special bomb. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. 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.
