| Description

The Vickers Wellington was Britain’s most capable bomber at the start of WWII and would see extensive service throughout the war, including with RAF Coastal Command. Undertaking long and arduous maritime patrols, Wellington Mk.VIIIs performed reconnaissance, anti-submarine and anti-shipping strike roles in the vital battle against German U-boats, helping to keep Britain’s sea lanes open and preventing Axis forces re-supplying by sea.

This is my 3rd build of the wonderful new tool of the Airfix Wellington, but the first GR version and it goes together beautifully and I would say it's probably my favourite Airfix kit at the moment. I will be doing another 1 sometime soon. Being greedy I could have asked for a little detail in the new glazed nose section, but it still gets 5*s from me. I did a build thread in the Aircraft Forum if you are interested. Hopefully Airfix will give us more versions like the MK.II, the Mk.X and the GR Mk.XIV as I think the tooling has scope for these variants.
