Canberra's in 1/72 scale
The B-57, the American license build Canberra of Martin, can be made using the Italeri kit no. 144 in 1/72 scale.
The night RB-57A of 1 TRS of the 10 Tactical Recon Wing of the USAF as based in West Germany in 1957 was made.
The model had some small adaptions:
The model has the correct engines. I also added the opened trailing edge flaps with red inner colour.
The markings were made using coloured
decals and various spare decals.
B-57 kit of Italeri kit was also converted into a B-57B of the Pakistani
AF, with a special radar nose. It is a model representing a
7 squadron aircraft based at Massroor in 1981.
The nose came from a spare droptank and the model was fitted with small antennas and some fairings under the nose. The trailing edge flaps were also "dropped".
also issued in the eighties a 1/72 Canberra kit, representing the PR.9
with the different (longer chord) wings and larger tailplane.
The kit was detailed with an opened cone for forward crew entry and servicing and the various camera's.
The model was finished in the typical
sand colour of RAF recon Canberra's.
