The Avro Lancaster BMk I/III

This absolutely stunning build of one of the most iconic British aircraft by modelling friend 樊成彬 is the Border Models 1/32nd scale kit, this model depicts one of the 550 Squadron RAF and was a heavy bomber squadron of the Royal Air Force during World War II. Formed at RAF Waltham on 25th November 1943, 550 Squadron flew Avro Lancaster bombers as part of No. 1 Group RAF. In early 1944, the squadron was moved to RAF North Killingholme, Lincolnshire where it continued operations until May 1945, when it began dropping food over the Netherlands as a relief effort as part of Operation Manna. The squadron was disbanded on 31st October 1945. Today, a surviving Lancaster bomber continues to fly in the markings of BQ-B "Phantom of the Ruhr" EE139 from 550 squadron as part of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.
