This is the old Airfix 1/72 B(I)6 kit with a corrected nose profile. and resin engine fronts. If you want to have a look at the build it's here http://ipmscanberras...xt-build?page=1 WK165 was the last of 75 B.2's built by Avro, she spent her entire flying life in Australia engaged in various R&D and weapons trials. She is now superbly restored at the South Australian Aviation Museum http://www.saam.org.au/

Thanks for looking!

Thanks David and Gil, David got it in one, it is thought to be a photo calibration marking as are the two black lines on the bomb bay doors. Later on she had a collection of black rectangles painted behind one of the wheel wells. The white B(I)8 in my little photo also had the triangle.

Sorry Gil I forgot to say, the white, it's Acrylic Auto paint from a rattle can. I don't use an airbrush and painting white with the old hairy stick is beyond my skill set. If only more cars were painted in British and American Camouflage colours :)
