Howdy chaps

Yes, dont have a heart attack, you see quite right, I'M building a plane...  Shocked 

This is the new tool Lancater BII with the Bristol Engines (?right word).

So, twenty plus odd years ago, i stuck together the old Lancaster, with the black plastic, with reckless abandon.
How things have changed

Man this is a lekker kit and it literally falls together, yup, an airfix kit that literally falls together...

Ok, so here's where im upto now.




Undersides all black from Tamiya Rattlecans, and the Dark Green / Dark Earth Camo from Valejo.


Ok sorry this is a bit kak, but the cameras playing up again.
The cockpit is fairly well detailed with pilot & navigators posie...

Ok so this is a huge learning curve for me, so ill keep you updated.

Steve

More like im moving to the Dark side... Shocked 

I actually started this around about the 2nd or 3rd this month and been moving along slowly with it.
The part that terrifies me about aircraft, the join lines on the fuselage turned out to be a big brrrrrrrp basically because the fuselage fit was fantastic. a little rub over with sanding sticks and they just disappeared... again, on an Airfix kit...

Busy with the engines now, and ill post some more at the weekend.

Well done Steve! look out - we will get Geoff building one next!!!!

Good to hear the new tool version is much improved!

Did you have to trap the turrets into the fuse sides before you glued it ? or are you just going to glue the turrets in fixed?

The camo painting looks good too!

Hiya Phil

Thanks.  Smile 

All the turrets are drop in's, not like on the old ones, so you can leave them off till the end. painting the canopy and turret beading looks like its going to be a hoot...
