Tamiya 1/48 Grand Slam Bomber Lancaster – Model Kit

The four-engined heavy bomber of the RAF, the Avro Lancaster, performed a variety of bombing operations and other roles during WWII. The B.I (Special) configuration of the aircraft, known as the “Grand Slam Bomber” was modified to carry the largest bomb made in war, the 22,000lb (9,979kg) “Grand Slam bomb”. The first time the Grand Slam bomb was used successfully was on March 14th of 1945, in the attack against the Bielefeld Viaduct in northern Germany. This viaduct was a vital railroad node connecting the Ruhr industrial zone with large cities such as Hanover.


  • Assembly plastic model kit based on the masterpiece bomber of the RAF, the Grand Slam Bomber (Lancaster BI Special 22000lb. Bomb).
  • It is impressive in both detail and size. Model overflows with detail from the intricate suspension to the tires that appear to deform under the weight of the aircraft.
