Immediately after World War II broke out, Barnes Wallis of Vickers suggested bombing and destroying a group of dams supplying power in the Ruhr area, Germany's largest industrial area.
The idea was to design a bomb in the shape of a drum can with about 3 tons of explosives, give it a reverse rotation to the direction of travel upon dropping, and skip it over the water's surface to strike the dam's wall to let it sink and explode at a depth of 9 meters to destroy the dam.
On May 13, 1943 at midnight, 617 squadron's 19 Lancaster B MK. III succeeded in destroying the Mohne and Eder dams in Germany, which made the squadron earn the monicker " The Dambusters."
The excellent Hong Kong Models 1/32 Lancaster B MK.III has been re-tooled with a newly sculpted lower surface to carry this special bomb upkeep.
