Darren Baker takes a look at the Vickers Wellington Mk II in 1/72nd scale from Revell of Germany. The Wellington served throughout WW2 and so this model may be a basis for many other options to come from Revell of Germany.

The only thing Revell is the box. The plastic is the MPM kit released a few years ago. Typically the sprues contain parts for other Mks, e.g., Mk IV, so all they needed to do was change the box illustration, decals, and instruction sheet. The MPM kit contained a couple of resin inserts for the radiator fronts.

At first I thought Revell had simply omitted the resin radiator fronts, but they've included them as two-part styrene assemblies moulded on the same sprues as the fuselage halves.
