RCAF Hampdens in the Snow

Modeler's Note: There are two kits of the Hampden. The Airfix kit which is short on detail with raised panel lines and the newer Valom kit. The Valom kit has much better detail and recessed panel lines, but all reports say it is a tough build with ill fitting clear parts. I'm happy I have an Airfix kit set aside with Aeroclub engines as it seems like it may be the easier build.
