Won't go into the very impressive history of 617 squadron. The Dam Busters.

Just the model. Its the really old Airfix kit with parts to do the fabled Dam Buster. Mind you this is not the new edition I recently built. This sucker had LOTS of flash and a decal sheet that was far past its prime. Fortunately the guy I built the kit for included an after market sheet with new roundels and code letters.

Not a difficult build, once you removed all the flash. Sometimes these old kits turn out pretty nice.
