Default Corgi Avro Lancaster "S for Sugar" AA32601

Another one for the Archives:

It's been a long time searching but finally got the famous "S for Sugar"

This is by far my favorite, it is the oldest surviving Lancaster and flew an amazing 137 operations. This aircraft was the first RAF heavy bomber to complete 100 operations, it is now on display at the RAF Museum, Hendon.

As always, Corgi knows how to make a good Lancaster. Heavy bird, well detailed. I wish they made the metal landing gears back then but it's still a cool bird. Here's some pictures:










Close up on the bomb-bay, I like the newer Corgi Lancaster with removable green bombs though



Enjoy!

Thumbs up Re: Corgi Avro Lancaster "S for Sugar" AA32601

Nice scoop of a fine looking model. A true Corgi 'classic' that should be re-done up to todays specs. IMPO.

That was my first Lanc I bought oh, so many years ago now (2000?). Anyhow, I'm clearing mine out so if anyone wants it, local sale only. PM.

Hello SKF,

That's a very nice addition to your collection, love that version of the Lanc.
I have it in 1/144 because I couldn't find his big brother, so I envy you .
Like the quote of Goering on it.....and boy he got it wrong.

Regards,

Nick.

S Sugar was an unlimited production run so no certificate was issued

Congratulations on finding one!

Yep...an absolute classic. And that term is used far to often for the Hobby. Have it (of course) and still one of my favourites.

Not 100% sure it was the first Lanc to achieve 100 missions, but was in fact second.

Yeah, another release of S for Sugar is often discussed, but I am unsure I feel the need or whether it will be a success. I mean from 3 feet away I cannot really discern to many issues with compared to more modern Lancasters.

I mean I am open to the idea....just not completely convinced.
