This is the old Airfix 1/72 B(I)6 but with the nose replaced from the cockpit forward by one cut from the old Frog B(I)8 kit. The only other modifications I made were to shorten the bullets in the engine intakes and fit larger, more accurate tailpipes. This old Airfix kit build up quite nicely with a bit of care gluing the fuselage halves (they need to be glued in stages to get it all aligned) and the wing/fuselage joins.
English Electric Canberra B2 WD980 617 Squadron, RAF Binbrook, early 1953.
In hindsight, I should have attached and sanded down the edges of the nose glazing before painting but overall a pretty easy and satisfying build.
