Too good to be true.  Did the engine come with the kit?

 

Thank you.

Sincerely,

Mark

Looking great, the Tamiya Lancaster is one of the kits that got me back into modelling (the 1/32 Matchbox Spitfire was the other one) I have not built the Lancaster yet but I have a couple in the stash so this thread provides me with some much needed inspiration. The only question that I have concerns the exhaust staining on the outboard engines as I always thought that the outer staining was underneath the wing.

 

Cheers

That is fantastic.  One very minor critique that I only mention for interest sake,  Airflow over the outer wing rarely allowed for exhaust staining of the upper wing on the outer most exhaust bank. Most of it went under the wing rather than over it.

 

Great job though, Very well weathered.

Thanks Ron, very useful! I will try to tone down the exhaust staining on the outboard engines, if the paint allows it?

Kent simply brilliant, captured her beautifully..........now I need to decide if do a 1/48 or wait for the1/32 HK.........

Were there any real headaches with 1/48 given its vintage?

Sublime Kent, though I have to say the serial number isn't right but I guess you're happy with that! :)

Yeah Max for the time being I'm going with the photo of JO-V

 

The photo clearly shows a conversion to the rear door of this JO-V, this could be the cut-away hatchway for a camera.

As for the Serial no, I still have my doubts about this. I've found another JO-V with the serial no not showing in the list 'RF270'

 

7698-180917222325-121921551.jpeg

 

Maybe an error who knows? I'm fine with PD337, at least for the time being...

I have written to IWM, asking if they can confirm the text for their photo. I will wait to see if they have an answer.  :-)

Hmm... I will try not to insult anyone. Tamiya's old kite is holding up remarkable well, even by todays standard's.

It depends a lot on what you want? It has some obvious flaws, that can be corrected without too much work. 

My main focus was the missing surface details, I mean the surface areas are huge even in 1/48 and the 'stressed skin' is a characteristic feature of the Lanc's. This was my main objective, trying to recreate some of this in a more authentic way.

When I started this build, it was little more than an experiment, I wasn't even sure if I would ever finish it, until two weeks ago!

 

7698-180917183646-1218973.jpeg

 

I have put this issue to Neil at HK Models, that if they would successfully be able to replicate, what I call the 'stressed skin' effect, in a way that has only been attempted by Airfix (to my knowledge) on their 1/24 Typhoon, then they would have really have a model   that would turn the heads in the modelling world!

 

Well we will just have to wait and see how far HK Models will take this issue. The even larger 1/32 surfaces, with rivets but

without the 'stressed skin' effect would make no sence to me, being such a characteristica of the Lanc, but thats just my opinion...

Thanks Kent, with my limited bench time I suspect the HK Lanc is going to be a scale to far, thanks for the honest answer.......perhaps the 48th is a better bet for me.........
