On 27th March 1945 20 Lancasters of 617 Squadron armed with 22,000 lb “Grand Slam”
earthquake bombs attacked the U-boat shelter at Farge. The shelter was a huge structure
with a concrete roof 23ft thick. Two grand slams penetrated the roof burying the shelter
under thousands of tons of rubble.

    I t’s a nice change to see the lanc in day bombing colours.
    Good accurate detail. I have an old ,1970s I think, Aero Modellers mag with a write up by someone that actually saw these a/c and made notes of the camouflage etc.

  • Thanks Neil, I try to do something a little different from time to time. My reference was the Scale Aircraft Modeller monograph on the Lancaster
