Two former Lancaster bomber pilots will officially unveil a replica of the British war plane at Horsham RSL on Wednesday night.
Pat Kerrins of Tatura and Don Smith of Ararat are guest speakers at the military history night, a monthly joint initiative between Horsham RSL and the U3A.
Mr Smith will retell his story of being shot down and captured by German forces and kept in a prisoner of war camp.
There will also be a presentation about bomber command, a documentary about the Lancaster bomber and the unveiling of the replica model.
Horsham RSL affiliate vice-president Peter Creek has spent 575 hours during the past two and a half years building the replica.
Mr Creek said it took 2600 parts to build the replica, which he decided to build after seeing a television advertisement.
"In parts it was difficult because the parts are so minute it had to be done with a magnifying glass and tweezers,'' he said.
"It took a lot of dedication but it has turned out fantastic.''
The model will be on permanent display at Horsham RSL after the unveiling.
The military history night starts at 7.30pm on Wednesday at Horsham RSL, with seating limited to 50 people.
