I was always a little intrigued by the Manchester and learned quite a bit about it in the research for the previous Lancaster painting -Lucky Lady.
The Manchester was an underpowered failure which was used for a short while in the bombing campaign. Fortunately it's development lead to the wonderful Lancaster.
The Acrylic painting below eventually went to a pilot who flew that very aircraft. He lived in glsagow and was evidently very pleased to see his old kite brought to life on canvas .
Again a dire photograph but all I have now.
