| Description

The incredible success of the English Electric Canberra jet bomber can be gauged by the length of time it remained in service with the Royal Air Force.  With the first Canberras arriving at RAF No.101 Squadron in early 1951, the last photo-reconnaissance PR.9 machines were only withdrawn in 2006 – a remarkable 55 years in service.  

When the Canberra entered RAF service in the early 1950’s, it was truly a ground-breaking aircraft in every respect.  Possessing performance superior to that of many front line fighter aircraft of the day, the Canberra was capable of flying at speeds and altitudes which make it almost impervious to interception by enemy fighters.  Setting a number of world speed and altitude records, the highly capable Canberra was coveted by many of the world’s air forces and became a great export success for the British Aviation industry.  The definitive B.2 bomber variant was licence built in Australia, under the designation Canberra B.20.

A bit disappointing

I am currently still building this model and while it is starting to come together and may look okay once completed I had numerous issues with it along the way. The plans have a number of errors (incorrect part numbers and contradiction in paint colour between plans and painting guide (plans say silver for external band around jet nozzles while paint guide says gun metal)). There are no locating guides for the cockpit assembly and absolutely no side wall detail. Like the Mosquito kit in the same scale it is somewhat disappointing when compared to most of the other Airfix offerings of late.

Brilliant

Its a really good model, especially for starters. There are many ways of painting it and different decals. What I liked the most was the way you could have different finishes, you could have it a a bomber o a spy plane. I really recomend it!!!
