Hi Guys This year will see the 60th Anniversary of the first flight of the Martin B.57 Canberra. To mark this event the IPMS UK Canberra SIG will have a B.57 themed display for the year. Other than the B.57's I already have I've just finished these two. The first is one of two RB.57A-1's operated by the Taiwanese AF for over flights of the Chinese mainland. One of the two was shot down but this one survived and was subsequently converted to an RB.57F. The kit is based on the old Airfix B(I)6 with FROG wings the build can be seen here. http://ipmscanberras...b-57a-1-in-1-72 The next one is RB.57D 53-3973 This is the High Planes RB.57D kit, not the best kit in the world, in fact I've started and stopped this model more times than any I've ever built. The colour scheme was for the calibration of satellite based recon system. The Aircraft lost a wing in flight and crashed in a school yard, thankfully no one was hurt on the ground and pilot ejected safely too. Again, the build can be seen here at http://ipmscanberras...h-planes-rb-57d Thanks for looking John
