SWorkbench - Operation Chastise 75


392 posts

To mark the impending 75th anniversary of the famous ‘Dambusters Raid’, the latest edition of Workbench features the welcome return of a popular Airfix kit to the 2018 range and we will see why these ‘Special’ Lancasters proved to be so fascinating for the modeller.


We also look at two beautiful new British Aerospace Hawk schemes due for impending release, announce the winner of our recent 1/24th scale Typhoon competition and showcase some beautiful Airfix cars which are looking a little the worse for wear.

Hi, Can you please tell me, wasn't this kit sold several years back already, but with different box art ? I built this same kit, or at least this exact same model inclusive of paint details you show on your site here, at least 2 years ago ?! IS this the same one, or am I getting confused - which wouldn't be unusual for me  8^)

BTW, the model I built was referred to AS being the 75th Anniversary of the Operation Chastise ?!

AFAIK, the only difference I can see here is just the box art, nothing more ??? Please help, Cheers.Cool
