Bomber replica created by artist

By Mike Cotton, Town Reporter Friday 20th June 2014
Rob Wass and his bomber

A FACTORY worker has spent about 1,500 hours creating this scrap metal replica of a Lancaster Bomber which he calls 'his tribute' to the brave members of Bomber Command during the Second World War.


Rob Wass has used hinges, cable ties, carpet grippers, dismantled aerosol cans, bits of brass rod and even an old food mixer to create this work of art.

 

The work is currently exhibited at Craftworks, a gallery in the Arcade in the town centre.
