RB396 48th scale build

RB396 48th Build headlineRichard Spreckley, of Mancave models, is building us a 1:48 scale model of RB396 along side all his other custom work. This model will come with us to shows across the country and act as an illustration of what RB396 would have looked like around the time of her final flight. There are no photos known to exist of RB396 so many, many hours of research has gone in to trying to establish exactly how her paint scheme would have looked; this is something we are still working on.

This build is now complete, see for yourself how she looks…

This is a representation of how RB would have looked towards the end of the War in 1945, and is not necessarily a representation of how RB will look when she flies in 2024 on the 80th anniversary of D-Day. You can purchase your very own custom 1:48 scale model through the project, and have Richard customise it as you would like, or, he could make you your very own RB. You can find the details on the shop, here. There are only 2 models left at the introductory price of £150, with Richard donating his time building the models so all proceeds go to the project.
