    Lancaster POS - S for Sugar R5868

    During overhaul all sections of the aircraft were dismantled. At the time (unlike now) they didn't care about provenance or keeping aircraft authentic. Because the cockpit had the bombtally and noseart you could easily think that's the original complete airframe ( I believe S-Sugar was originally to be built as a Manchester). If components weren't up to sratch they were scrapped or reduced to spares and replacement parts fitted, either new spares or reconditioned used ones. During wreck recovery I have found several Lancaster fuselage Perspex windowpanels which had been painted over black. Cees

    HK Lancaster

    Some new pics (2) on the HK Models facebook page showing a nacelle with undercarriage and a Merlin. It is progressing.

    HK Lancaster

    You are all correct. Having found several of these cable cutters from digs, they are very ingenious things with a cartridge operated chisel to cut through the cable. Cees

    Revell Spitfire MkIXc

    Nice finish. The Revell kit is a good basic kit. At the moment I am converting one into a MK XIV using the Grey Matter Figures set. Cees

    B26 Marauder - LSP

    He had many plans. He visited me twice at home where I gave him a large number of Halifax drawings. He wanted to that one as well. Alas. Cees

    New items n the horizon from tigger models

    John, I see the Hampden has increased in price. Does this mean you have reworked your patterns? We have been discussing this over the past few years at Telford since the kit I got which was below standard. And I really want to do a Hampden. Thanks in advance. Cheers Cees

    Matchbox/Revell 1/32 Tiger Moth

    I have a Matchobox one on the go too, the yellow wings really hurt your eyes. It's a nice simple kit. Kent Karlsen did a very nice one in Norwegian markings recently. Cheers Cees

    Avro Lancaster B Mk.I Tamiya 1:48

    Looks fantastic, I especially like the 300 sqn livery, I plan on doing the HKM Lancaster as DV286 BH-C, as we recovered the wreckage of that aircraft from the IJsselmeer during 2003. Cees

    Tamiya's release schedule next 5 years (suggestion)

    Shall we call this the "wishful thinking thread" or "one of those other threads" Although a Halifax would be my cup of tea, coffee too. Cees
