I have been looking for a modelm of a Canberra PR7 or PR9 for the past 10 years, Matchbox issued a 1/72 scale RP9 in I think 1983, you sometimes find them on Ebay and they end up going for about £35.  :-eek

It's really good news about Airfix and Humbrol. Nevertheless I bought all the Humbrol paint that I could find in my local model shops just in case. I still can't find a paint that beats Humbrol.

I have this kit much before and it look the same as the image of the Canberra from your unit.
