  1. Anything there is, the doors were almost always open on the ground. Interior shots, size, colour you name it. When my conversion is finished HKM will probably release theirs. Cees
  2. any info on the auxiliary air doors on the sides of the fuselage. Cheers Cees
  3. Does anyone know the colour inside the air-intakes of the FGR? And is the rear of a lighter colour compared to the front near the intake leading edges? Thanks in advance. Cees
  4. I wouldn't wait to see an RAF kit pop up. In the meantime I am still beavering away on my own conversion. Cees
  5. Ohhhh, not again
  6. Any photographs of your steed PP? Cees

    My opinion on the Lancaster from HK Models

    You sure? Rivetting aluminium skins to frames causes stresses that result in a similar effect. During use this may be increased but it is there from the beginning. Regarding the oilcanning, I like the WNW fuselage very much. The wings not so. During flight the wings tilt up a bit causing wrinkles. As the aircraft is on the ground gravity takes over and the wrinkles disappear mostly. Have a look at NX611 for instance. I am not so fond of WNW's wingsurface, but that's a matter of opinion. Anyway WNW will provide a great just as HK Models has. A matter of opinion. Judging by the many topics and pages of them people tend to spend more time discussing than building kits Cees

    My opinion on the Lancaster from HK Models

    ED, Thanks for you to take the time to write your observations on the Lanc. As a member of the LSM team who participated with HK Models it is good to read that in general the model is well liked and no model is perfect. And as Jim said we supplied data on the exterior of the Lanc. The initial idea HKM was to upscale the Tamiya Lanc. Although still an impressive model it has many flaws. We wanted to make sure the exterior would be as good as possible. The interior details we had nothing to do with. The only thing I didn't like in your review is the constant comparisons to WNW, ZM, Tamiya, HB Liberator etc. IMHO that is useless. But that's my opinion. Cheers Cees
  9. That would be the best way to do.
  10. Well I didn't want to wait and started on my own little RAF Phantom conversion using Frank Mitchell's articles for reference. It's on LSM. Cheers Cees

    HK Lancaster musings

    Try the PSL book on the Tamiya Lancaster by Gerald Swanborough (oldie), it has several conversion options including the Lancastrian. Apart from that looking at pics you may get an idea of the shape of the nose and guestimate. Cees
  12. Has any built Liberator kit gone through it's hoofs already then?
