This was a project I completed some five or six years ago. It represents a Lanc which was destroyed by the explosion of its photoflash flares during arming up for a winter mission over Germany. Amazingly, there was no secondary detonation and, I believe, no loss of life.
I saw it as an interesting way to show some interior detail. Modelling the aircraft pan was quite nostalgic for me, having been based at Waddington in Lincolnshire myself (in the Seventies). I well remember chipping the ice and snow from the surface of the airfield. Not fun!
