  1. you sure? the oilcanning effect is a result of the stresses in the metal due to rivetting. With a thin metal skin it cannot be avoided. not to be confused with the stresses while the aircraft is in flight where the dihedral increases due to aerodynamic forces and the resulting "creases" in the wingskins. The fuselage while on the ground sags because of the weight. I had the pleasure to see Lancaster NX611 yesterday and there is oilcanning everywhere. Also a wish came true when I sat in the pilot seat. Great inspiration for building the new kits. Cees
  2. IIRC Iconicair also does supply the Spiteful type empennage. Perhaps the best way to start would be the Tamiya Mk XVI but with a lot of modificatons aka the mentioned conversion. A Mk 22/24 would perhaps be a less complex option? Cees
  3. Jeroen Peters posted his review on LSM a few days ago. Cees
  4. Hi Colin, What fit issues are there and what detail hasn't been added?Just being curious. Cees
  5. How do you make the clear part fit the resin part? Any dimensions given in the package? Cees
  6. Just another example of the many many many: I want/need one of those <name type> topics. Come on, can't you just stay on topic! Cees
  7. There's no such thing as an expert. Cees
  8. No problem Jack, but it has been said here before. These days people discuss discuss and discuss which ultimately end in (to put it politically correct) no positive comments regarding a kit, without noticing it's merits. Just my (to put it politically correct) humble opinion. Cees
  9. We made sure the general outline of the airframe was as accurate as possible but had nothing to do with the overall design of the kit. The undercart has the locks in place (the diagonal stays) that will add rigidity but are not usually fitted (were they during wartime?) But having inspected the build up model at Telfort the undercart is well up to the job. What's this complaining about strength of undercarts etc. I know the aftermarket will have their bread and butter for this but really?!? IMHO there is too much discussion and too little building of, in this case, the Lanc. Cheers Cees
  10. Although very interesting to see these kind of posts regarding "accuracy", they are souldestroying (at least to me) and take the fun out of modelling. But hey that is just my opinion. Party on. Cees
  11. How about rapid prototyping the Spey exhaust cans? Would save me a lot of work. Cees
  12. Thanks for posting this, I have just scratchbuilt that fin top and was looking for access panel details. Very useful. Cheers Cees
