On May 16th, 1943, Operation Chastise, also known as “The Dam Busters,” commenced. Under Allied Wing Commander Guy Gibson, 19 Lancaster Bombers took flight to destroy pivotal dams throughout Germany—thus jeopardizing the country’s food and water supply. Typically used as a high-altitude night bomber, the Lancaster was this time used in a low-altitude offensive, marking a key turning point for Allied forces in World War II. This model serves as a tribute to the famed aircraft that started it all. With 239 total parts, this 1:72-scale model measures 17 inches long, so it’s sure to make an impression wherever you display it.
