Vickers Wellington MK II History:

The Vickers Wellington was a British twin engined, long range medium bomber. It was designed during the mid-1930s at Brooklands in Weybridge, Surrey. Led by Vickers Armstrong’s chief designer Rex Pierson; a key feature of the aircraft is its geodetic airframe fuselage structure, which was principally designed by Barnes Wallis. Development had been started in response to Air MinistrySpecification B.9/32, issued in the middle of 1932, for a bomber for the Royal Air Force.

This specification called for a twin-engined day bomber capable of delivering higher performance than any previous design. During the development process, performance requirements such as for the tare weight changed substantially, and the engine used was not the one originally intended.

The Wellington was used as a night bomber in the early years of the Second World War, performing as one of the principal bombers used by Bomber Command. During 1943, it started to be superseded as a bomber by the larger four-engined “heavies” such as the Avro Lancaster. The Wellington continued to serve throughout the war in other duties, particularly as an anti-submarine aircraft.

It holds the distinction of having been the only British bomber that was produced for the duration of the war, and of having been produced in a greater quantity than any other British-built bomber. The Wellington remained as first-line equipment when the war ended, although it had been increasingly relegated to secondary roles. The Wellington was one of two bombers named after Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington, the other being the Vickers Wellesley.

A larger heavy bomber aircraft designed to Specification B.1/35, the Vickers Warwick, was developed in parallel with the Wellington; the two aircraft shared around 85% of their structural components. Many elements of the Wellington were also re-used in a civil derivative, the Vickers VC.1 Viking.

    Good model with excellent prints over many parts, but the engine nacelles are a little bit fragile but otherwise a great model.

  2. mbwellstx (verified owner)

    I was not prepared for how big this is.
    I am going to need to rework my display area to properly display it.
    Really like the darker colors stands out well. I also agree with the previous review about the engines. They do need some reinforcement. One thing I wish Cobi would do and this really applies to all aircraft without stands is the signage. It is so small compared to the ones on the stands. They need to come up with a better design for the larger aircraft.

  3. zekintha25 (verified owner)

    Another good model. Compared to some WW2 bombers it looks a little cumbersome, but it was another great realistic model example of a WW2 bomber. I wish Cobi would decide on what scale they want to use for aircraft, as I like to display items together.
