It was a Mk. IV bomber, but it was a very special one — DZ353 which was on 627 Squadron throughout my second tour of operations and which I flew twice — each time to Berlin. DZ353 was eventually shot down over France in July 1944 but the model of her occupies an honoured place in my house to this day. Happy modelling to you all. Group Captain J. R.

I work on upper surfaces first, let it dry for 15 minutes, flip the model over and spray the under surfaces, then once they have set up, I do both sides and set it aside to dry for half an hour.

It may take two coats to get a decent gloss for decalling. I set the model aside to dry overnight. The Future is very tough and makes the model both sandable (which Tamiya paints are NOT) and hard to accidentally scratch.
