April is the month of Easter, Hari Raya, and then Labour Day on 1st May 2023. It has been an exciting month as we celebrated the 80th anniversary of the Corgi 72nd Lancaster Dambustersaircraft from Operation Chastise. We also had our Airfix Operation Chastise Competition on Saturday 20th May 2023 at Hobby Bounties in which there were 4 completed entries, and Razali Ahmad won with his Dambuster diorama. Congratulations, Razali!
