Random question but it's bugging me

Post by ACLVC10 » Wed Jan 08, 2014 2:14 pm

Over the last couple of weeks there has been advertised on TV a aircraft magazine to collect with a model included each week, does anyone know the name of this magazine??

Giant Warplane Collection, http://giantwarplanecollection.com/ Not been into the newsagents to see what the Lancaster looks like, but does look odd in the advert

Agree with Gary - the colours on some of the models look awful - way to bright like something from a child's colouring book -and no it isn't my TV or eyesight!

The advert makes a lot of the planes look weird - again a mass produced product that is almost there - and will do great to introduce kids - but the models, hmmmmm
Amateur modeller

Yes I know I just looked at them on the website and they don't look the greatest but like you say if it gets the kiddies interested :)

These things are such a con, I don't know about the aviation one, but the Pirates of the Caribbean (build your own Black Pearl) works out at £718.80 for all the issues!!

I think you'll find its supposed to be one of the 33 Lancaster B.I (Special) aircraft of 617 Sqn modified to carry the 22,000lb 'Grand Slam' deep penetration bomb. If it is, then it should have 'YZ' as the sqn identification codes.
