The english Electric Canberra entered service in 1951 as Britain’s firs jet bomber, with a performance that was not only vastly superior to its piston engined predecessors, but could fly at a height and speed that many contemporary fighters could not match. It went on to be produced in many different bomber, interdictor and reconnaissance variants for the RAF and export customers all over the world, and remained in RAF service for 57 years. The B(I)8 operated in the interdictor role and could be armed with cannons, rockets, bombs or nuclear weapons.
The model is of wood and blue foam construction. A laser-cut wood-pack is available which contains most of the shaped parts needed such as fuselage formers and wing ribs, but you will need additional sheet and strip wood and ply to complete the model, as well as the blue foam and hardware needed. The model was designed to be powered by twin Speed 400 electric motors.
