Wingnut Wings Announces Development of 1/32 Avro Lancaster Model Kit

At the Tokyo Hobby Show, New Zealand model developer Wingnut Wings announced the development of a new Avro Lancaster model kit in 1/32 scale.

The upcoming kit (32044) will reportedly represent a B.Mk.III “Dambusters” machine and will mark the company’s first foray into WW2 aircraft kits. From the look of the images above, the model will include a great deal of detail, including the “bouncing bomb” used for the raid, which saw 19 Lancasters of 617 Squadron attack a number of German dams, resulting in severe flooding that destroyed or damaged power stations, factories and mines.

The Wingnut Wings Lancaster is currently slated for release sometime in late 2019.
