Revell 1/72 British Legends 100 Years RAF Gift Set
Model Number: 05696
The Revell British Legends RAF 100 Years Gift Set in 1/72 scale from the plastic aircraft models range accurately recreates three of the real life British aircraft from World War II that are flown as part of the Battle of Britain display.
This plastic aircraft model comes with the required paint and glue.
Avro Lancaster Mk.I/III: The four-engined Avro Lancaster was without doubt the most famous of all the RAF heavy bombers in World War II. From 1942 it formed the backbone of the night bombing offensives deep in Germany and gained its fame through the sinking of the Tirpitz and the destruction of the Möhne and Eder dam. The Lancaster was able to carry loads of up to 9,980 kg of bombs, the heaviest individual one being the "Grand Slam". It saw service up to 1945 in 68 RAF Bomber Command squadrons and flew over 156,000 sorties. Out of a total of 7,300 aircraft produced almost half were lost. Today only two examples exist that are still airworthy, one in Great Britain, the other in Canada.
Hawker Hurricane Mk.II B: The Hawker Hurricane gained a high reputation for the RAF during the Battle of Britain in 1940 and was represented in all theatres of war in the Second World War. Heavily armed with 12 MGs the Mk II B could also carry bombs or auxiliary tanks for long-distance missions.
Spitfire Mk.V B: The most famous British aircraft of World War II combined excellent flying characteristics with an outstanding performance. The first production Spitfire were delivered in July 1938. The RR Merlin engine devefoped 1.470 ps; max. speed 594 km/h.

Reviewed by Peter Wood
Excellent service from Wonderland, but I can't say that for the kit. v.old tooling so a lot of flash and extruded "flaps" around many parts. Fit is not good and needs plenty of filling and sanding. A good exercise to develop modelling skills!

All 3 Kits are great but, a few parts are not formed or are damaged. mainly on the Lancaster kit, part no. 53 broken, and part no. 72 not formed. The rest of the kit OK and are making good models.
