Corgi 1/72 Avro Lancaster Bomber B.III, ED888 PM-M2 Mike Squared RAF No.103 Sqn, Elsham Wolds, Lincolnshire, 1944 AA32624


Corgi 1/72 Avro Lancaster Bomber B.III, ED888 PM-M2 Mike Squared RAF No.103 Sqn, Elsham Wolds, Lincolnshire, 1944 

Aviation Archive Corgi AA32624 1/72nd scale die-cast metal model of Avro Lancaster B.III, ED888, PM-M2, Mike Squared RAF No.103 Sqn, Elsham Wolds, Lincolnshire, 1944. This magnificant aircraft is arguably the best illustration of the Lancaster and Bomber Command's contribution to the war effort. It completed an astonishing 140 bombing missions - the most flown by any Lancaster in WWII.  Known as 'The Mother of Them All', Lancaster ED888 managed to survive the war, shooting down two Luftwaffe fighters in the process and was the most prolific of the 'Ton-up' Lancasters. Corgi's Lancasters are always inspiring models and this one was produced as a fitting way to mark the 75th anniversary of the first flight of Avro's most famous bomber.


The famous Avro Lancaster four engine heavy bomber was Britain’s most successful bomber of WWII, but endured something of a troubled start.  Its twin-engined predecessor, the Manchester, wasn't a great success, but included many of the design features that went on to make the Lancaster such a resounding aircraft.  With a huge, unobstructed bomb bay, the Lancaster could carry a massive bomb load and was capable of delivering the largest individual bombs used by the RAF in WWII.  Powered by four Rolls-Royce Merlin engines, the first Lancasters were delivered to RAF No.44 (Rhodesia) Squadron at Waddington, on Christmas Eve, 1941.

Model wingspan 435mm
