  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.


  2. 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.B)



  3. 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.



  4. I was watching some of Paul Budzik's video's the other day and noticed a mould for a 1/48 Liberator nose turret (or it looked like one). IIRC the general shape is quite simple being a cylinder with rounded top. If that can be simply (or not) made and the two front sections cut away and the kit's substituted then Bob is your uncle. Or is that too simplistic?
