Description: Over the years, authors, model makers and artists have consistently repeated the same mistakes and misconceptions regarding the Type 464, leading to most if not all published work to date containing some form of errors. Now for the first time, readers can explore every aspect of the Dambuster Lancaster both inside and out using a specially commissioned 3D model that has taken over 10 years to complete.

The model is the work of Polish artist Piotr Forkasiewicz who worked with historians, veterans and archives from around the world to construct the most accurate reproduction of a Type 464 ever seen. Fellow artist and Dambuster historian Mark Postlethwaite agreed to write the text and to delve into the individual histories of all 23 Type 464s, with both artists then working on the overall design of the book. The result is quite breathtaking. 128 pages full of close up views of the aircraft both in natural metal and camouflage, detailed studies inside the cockpit area, a full exploration of Upkeep and the fusing systems and finally detailed histories of all 23 Type 464s using every known photograph to illustrate each airframe.
