November ballot prize – An Airfix “Dambusters” Avro Lancaster B.III (Special) scale model kit

The August ballot prize was a 1:72 scale Airfix model kit of the Avro Lancaster B.III (Special) Type 464 (Provisioning), worth £38.99. The specially-modified B.III (Special) Lancasters that flew on the ‘Dams Raid’ had their mid-upper turrets and bomb-bay doors removed so that they could carry the Barnes Wallis designed, so-called ‘bouncing bomb’, officially named ‘Upkeep’. This very accurate kit contains 239 parts and, when built, the model has a wingspan of 432mm.

Winner:           Johanna Silverthorn from Hampshire

December ballot prize – Copies of ‘Lancaster – Above and Beyond’ and ‘Spitfire – Inspiration of a Nation’ on DVD

For the December ballot prize one lucky club member won DVDs of the stunning feature documentary films ‘Lancaster – Above and Beyond’, and ‘Spitfire – Inspiration of a Nation’. Both films feature stunning cinemaphotography and ‘Spitfire’, which was released in 2018, tells the story of the amazing fighter aircraft with stunning aerial footage, remastered archive footage, and compelling interviews.

Winner:           Colin Flinders from Derbyshire
