A-Model's 1/72 scale
Flashlamp Lancaster

"Operation Flashlamp"

I have been using models for some time now as artist references for my various Osprey history books.

Occasionally, I go one step further and use them to create a completed illustration.

This is my latest effort, which depicts Operation Flashlamp, the RAF strikes against Wehrmacht coastal defense batteries in Normandy in the pre-dawn hours of D-Day. This shows the strike against Pointe-du-Hoc by elements of 5 Group.

The illustration is based around a 1/144th scale A-Model Lancaster I picked up at the IPMS Nationals last month. It was pretty much an out-of-box job.
