  1. Just seen the Viking in the flesh at the show. Wonderful. Well done. Cees
  2. Collings Foundation's Lib came from an RAF-dump in India, was used by the Indian Air Force and later bought by Doug Arnold in the UK and passed on to Collings. It was first painted as All American, then Dragon and it's tail and finally Witchcraft. Cees
  3. We don't need any one of those, but it would be nice to have one.
  4. Only the later ones (at least the twenties series) had primer on.
  5. The wing join is the same as the B-17 and leaves no gaps. I fitted the wings of the testshot at the HK Models stand and it couldn't have been easier. Cees
  6. This kit is primarily responsible for the sudden cancellation of my scratchbuild HP 0/400 The unfinished fuselage will make a nice addition to the WNW kit when finished. Cees
  7. Good to read you had such a good time Kent. It was nice meeting you as well as seeing some familiar diorama's in the competition area (hey, that looks familiar isn't that the one made by Kent?) Keep it enjoying yourself. Cees
  8. Well. My scratchbuild O/400 has suddenly stalled due to unknown reasons. Cees
  9. Quite a list TT, by the way, I'm from the people's republic of the Netherlands Cees
  10. Time to bump this poor old thread. I can't wait to get my grubby hands on a HKM Lancaster. Thank goodness there is no oilcanning to sand off. Cees
  11. The Lancaster obviously judging by the 40 pages on LSP. Cees
  12. Simple, I want them both. Perhaps more of each. Can't help it I love the Lancaster (though I am a great fan of the Halifax). Cannot have too many of them. Cees
  13. Wow, this is a set I must have. (perhaps two). Great work Peter. Luckily we have Lancaster expert Hatch available Cheers Cees
  14. And during 2014 largely reworked to correct the the external outlines. Cees
  15. For that price a good basic kit with some "issues"? No problem, can't wait to get my hands on one. Doing the "Gremlins Roost" of which we have a lot of wreckage at the museum on display and a pic of the sharkmouth nose.
  16. That's a mk VII Rog. The Bull Creek example.
  17. And, speaking from experience, these radiators are extremely heavy.
  18. IIRC there are three intake variants as used on the Lanc.
  19. You're a brave man who is playing with fire.....for a short while. Destiny awaits
  20. The Packard Merlin 28 engine is the US built variant of the RR Merlin XX. Apart from details and accessories they look visually similar. Providing 8 engines will be a matter of plastic overkill and more expensive too. The Mk III Lancaster was created to differentiate the US built engines. In service Lancs could be flying with a mix of both manufacturers engines. As Iain says we never had it so good. And yet we are not satisfied. Cees
  21. I work as a volunteer for ARG 1940-1945 and the museum has enough room for 1/32 bombers. One of the displays is about DV286 of 300 Squadron the remains of which we recovered from the Ijsselmeer together with the Dutch navy during 2003. The model I intend to do will complement the many recovered items of that Lanc. We also have an original RR Vulture engine in good condition my Manchester conversion of the prototype HKM Lancaster will make a nice addition too. Plenty of room for the HB Liberator too. At home......that's a different matter Cees
