The heavies are here!

My guess is that this is one of the few dios from CB that brings us a English landscape...but with a lot of concret in it.

Where are all the trees and grass CB??


The Avro Lencaster was the very first model bomber that I bought and assembled (that took place, I think, in the late XX century...) and it still remains my favourite WWII heavy bomber to this day.

The most sucessfull (in my book...) operation from this piece of hardware took place in Holland, in April and May 1945, when more than 3.000 airplanes flew thousands of sorties, in order to drop much needed supplies to the civilian population (operations "manna" and "chowhound"), and some crews were lost in the process.



Here is the link of the site where you can find that nice railway wagon with the propellers:
