Highly detailed 1/72 scale assembly model kit of the Vickers Wellington, a World War II era twin-engine medium bomber of the British Royal Air Force. The Wellington was originally developed in the mid-1930s, and the type was used mostly as a night time bomber by the RAF during the early stages of the Second World War before the type was replaced by the larger 4-engine Avro Lancaster heavy-bomber. This 1/72 scale model kit features 187 parts in light grey plastic and 16 clear parts for canopy. Decals for Wellington Mk.III, DF-640/BT-T, No.30 OTU Hixon, Staffordshire, September 1943 included.

This is a beautiful kit. Not for beginners though but for an experienced modeler due to the high parts count. The only knock is the decals are not as good as the plastic. The red is too bright for wartime RAF markings. There is a ton of interior detail that will not be seen but is great none the less. Some have been critical of the fabric detail being too heavy but that will disappear under the paint scheme. A very good and buildable Wellington.
This is a beautiful model. The Trumpeter decals are not quite as good as the Revell decals. They tend to stick a lot more. I couldn't find one of the paints, so I used military brown instead and it looks amazing!! One thing I didn't like was there were no doors for the back wheel, so I had to build it with the wheels down. I used gunship gray for the inside of the wheel cabin, looks neat. Perfect plane for those who have built 3-5 models, otherwise it will be way too easy, but still, awesome!
