Hi,

I recently came accross this photo of a Lancaster in a Tiger Force paint job. I found it in a junk shop and bought it for 50p.

The number under the port wing is readable as PA386.

Just wondered if there are any people out there who might know what became of her?

Cheers.

http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/10.gif I have been told by a very good authority on Lancasters that it was scrapped but if you want more of a detailed answer still ask on that forum.

Thanks for that Trumper.

I have registered for the forum you recommended, and will try there soon.

I know that at least one Tiger Force Lanc survived, Ive seen her. Check :

If youre in the UK and youre in the Lincolnshire neck of the woods, Id recommend a visit.

Thanks again.
