Default Corgi Avro Lancaster Getting Younger Every Day

ok anyone ever seen this? One of the Avros I really wanted to get. Lucky to find a brand new one from a retailer. It arrived today and the nose art is missing. This is one of the main reasons I collect these bombers is the nose art. Frustrating. How did this happen?

Oh f*ck ... What is happening with the QC of the companies ? I got last week another Lancaster, the Johnny Walker. It took me a lot of trimming to get the wheels inside the airplane and I had to put a plastic rod between the bomb doors because they don't stay open !

I couldn't agree more. Corgi has really let their quality down to the level of HM over the last few years. I've pretty much given up on them.

Same here, was a huge Corgi fan many years ago, can't bring myself to buy anything since the SEA hurricane......

It was nice they updated a few of their moulds but the quality of build and painting is sub par now

Actually the few I've bought recently have been excellent - as good as their earlier 'best' I'd have to say & I have or have had 300+ of their models.

GYED is a Lanc I bought then sold on - I only wanted one Tallboy version in my hangar and this one was produced without the aileron control actuators, first time they mucked that up on a 1/72 Lanc release. The Johnny Walker Tallboy version is a beaut.

I did like the nose art though and this is the first time I've seen one missing like this, hope you can send it back for a credit

I picked up the Johnnie Walker too and no problems on that one. Albeit from a different retailer.
