The Avro Lancaster, such a stalwart of the skies during the Second World War, also enjoyed a colorful and exciting postwar career. It is this era that the authors have chosen to focus on here, profiling the aircraft type across its many variants. Split into three primary sections, this book offers a concise yet informative history of the Avro Lancaster's postwar operational career (from 1945-1964) charting the course of all the various design improvements that occurred across this timeframe and including a selection of contemporary photographs with detailed captions. A 16-page color illustration section also features, profiling 48 separate aircraft (in profiles and 2-views). A model-making section completes this publication, offering exciting new instructional content. As with the other books in the Flight Craft series, whilst published primarily with the scale aircraft modeler in mind, it is hoped that those readers who might perhaps describe themselves as 'occasional' modelers - if indeed they model at all - may also find that this colorful and informative work offers something to provoke their interests too.
