1/144 Vickers Wellington Mk.X - Amercom

1/144 Vickers Wellington - Amercom
The Vickers Wellington was a British twin-engine, long range medium bomber designed in the mid-1930s at Brooklands in Weybridge, Surrey, by Vickers-Armstrongs' Chief Designer, R. K. Pierson. It was widely used as a night bomber in the early years of the Second World War, before being displaced as a bomber by the larger four-engine "heavies" such as the Avro Lancaster. The Wellington continued to serve throughout the war in other duties, particularly as an anti-submarine aircraft. It was the only British bomber to be produced for the entire duration of the war.

As usual with these Amercom releases, outside of Poland and the Czech Republic the best approach to look on ebay.

The only problem for the avid collector is that it appears in the same markings as the IXO/ALTAYA Wellington of Coastal Command ( see here ), with the exception of a Polish insignia (as seen above)
