  1. 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
  2. Jeroen Peters posted his review on LSM a few days ago. Cees
  3. Hi Colin, What fit issues are there and what detail hasn't been added?Just being curious. Cees
  4. How do you make the clear part fit the resin part? Any dimensions given in the package? Cees
  5. 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
  6. There's no such thing as an expert. Cees
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. How about rapid prototyping the Spey exhaust cans? Would save me a lot of work. Cees
  11. Thanks for posting this, I have just scratchbuilt that fin top and was looking for access panel details. Very useful. Cheers Cees
  12. So many possibilities, although there is a general standard in service there were many variations. Also depending on taste by the crew. Cees
  13. Does anyone have detailed informative on the auxiliary air door compartments? I have asked before but that was snowed under. Cees
  14. 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? Cees
  15. 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
  16. any info on the auxiliary air doors on the sides of the fuselage. Cheers Cees
  17. 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
  18. I wouldn't wait to see an RAF kit pop up. In the meantime I am still beavering away on my own conversion. Cees
  19. 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
