Avro Lancaster RAAF 460 Sqn PS5333-1

Avro Lancaster RAAF 460 Sqn PS5333-1, 1:150 Scale by Postage Stamp Planes.

“G for George” is an Avro Lancaster Mk I bomber, squadron code AR-G and serial number W4783, operated by RAAF 460 Squadron during World War II. It is now on permanent display at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra, Australia. “George” flew almost 90 combat missions over occupied Europe with No.460 Squadron, and its second most prolific surviving Lancaster, behind “S for Sugar” of RAAF 467 Squadron (137 operations). Most operational Lancasters were shot down before they had reached 20 operations.

Upon its retirement from combat duty in 1944, “George was flown to Australia by an all-RAAF crew of Bomber Command veterens. The bomber played a major part in raising War Bonds during a round-Australia publicity trip. After the war, it stood in the open air at RAAF Base Fairbairn, its fate uncertain, before being moved to the Australian War Memorial in 1955.

This Die-cast metal airplane model comes in 1:150 scale with plastic stand and is approximately 14 cm (5.5 inches) long with 20 cm (8 inch) wingspan.
