Fuselage together. I am using the newer Airfix version of the Eduard masks which seem to fit the clear parts ok so far...

Finally regarded as complete. My first attempt at a 4 engined bomber and my first attempt at rigging (aerial wires).

The aircraft denoted here is from 1943. PH-H (LM321) was the Squadron marking of 12 Sqn RAF. LM321 flew with a number of Squadrons including 460, 550 and 100. It was finally lost on the night of 10/11 June 1944 over Acheres.

Two pilots that flew in PH-H with 12 Squadron were Flight Leader Sqn Ldr FS Knight and Pilot Officer Thomas Forbes.
Thomas Forbes flew PH-H on 22 June 1943 on an operation to Mulheim whilst serving with 12 Sqn C Flight. Plt Offr Forbes was killed in action on an operation to Turin on 12 July 1943.
C Flight leader Sqn Ldr Knight and his crew failed to return from an operation to Cologne on 28 June 1943. Four are buried in Dutch cemeteries and three are commemorated on the Runnymede Memorial. Their average age was 23.
