One of my Lanc subject for this year.

As I have Canadian heritage anything from 6 Group (or anything Canadian) peaks my interest. This is the kit in question.

The decals represent RF128 which was a Lancaster B.Mk.I built at Armstrong Whitworth Aircraft at Baginton in Coventry. RF128 was on strength with 424 (Tiger) Sqdn RCAF, which had re-equipped with Lancs in January, 1945. 424 Sqdn was based at Skipton-on-Swale after returning from North Africa, and remained at Skipton-on-Swale for the rest of the war.

RF128 was scrapped in March, 1948.
