The scene was Masterton yesterday as three replica Avro Lancaster's painstakingly reproduced for the film at no expenses spared were trundled onto the tarmac for a press debut,the full scale model makers have made a superb job of these monsters all of which are earmarked eventually for air museums,costing millions of pounds the props turn with huge electric motors driving the big paddle airscrews,this is an engineering achievement in itself to reproduce such wonderful replicas that are to be used to good advantage in the remake of the Dambusters film.

There is only one name for Guy Gibsons dog,and that is Nigger,to change this would be corrupting history and attempting to re-write it,anyway it is the name of a well known boot polish which is what his treasured pet was named after,its just a storm in a tea cup I think.
The Lancaster replicas have a really good interior with stringering just like our models,the seats have been custom built by craftstmen,plus instrumentation and control colums etc,the interiors cost as much as the fibreglass shells to fit out ! museums and private individuals have been fighting for them when finished with by the film companies.
