    HK Lanc pilots seat

    As you may know the pilots seat in the HK Lanc is oh so wrong it's too long in the pan ( rectangle instead of square ) and in place of where the parachute would be it has a huge cushion on it???? I think this is the reason the seat looks too far back from the IP so does anybody know if the aftermarket guys, Quickboost ect have any plans to replace it. Another question was it the same manufacturer who made the seats for the pilot to sit on the parachute if so would a Spit or Hurricane seat pan be usable if there is no aftermarket seat. Cheers Graham

    Farewell to the Tornado soon.

    It's a corporate day out with my work, I test Laser systems that are/were fitted ( LRMTS, TIALD ) ect and been doing it since 82 so hopefully they will roll out the F35 also so I can get a close up of that ugly fuc*er ( I am also working on the laser for it's EOTS ). We usually get the Typhoon jockeys visiting our site on a yearly basis telling us how the Tiffie is doing a grand job.

    HK Models 1/32 Avro Lancaster

    Richard check out this review of a build from Jeroen Peters on LSM it's only 2 parts so far but very detailed and there are already quite a few errors he has picked up which should help you decide what to replace/scratchbuild. https://forum.largescalemodeller.com/topic/6004-hk-models-132-avro-lancaster-mk1-part-1/?fbclid=IwAR3B9pHAmuw5z8zFLBjqjlR1JNrGNYRp9E8NLT2ehbLfhsb3jnQ0wOusWfM Graham

    HK Lancaster B Mk. 1 Cockpit

    Hi Peter any plans for more upgrades? If you have a look at Jeroen's review on LSM he's picked up that there is no cone shaped lens for the strike camera just a box, the pilots seat is badly wrong it's far too long in the pan when it should be square so the support struts are as well so a new seat and supports needed. The 2 star shaped trimming wheels alongside the pilots seat are missing also and the control column is hollow and the brake lever is also missing so a few extras to go with your cockpit set? Graham

    Amsterdam bound

    Take a trip down to Arnhem visit the bridge and the small museum under it, I did it last year and I think it was 22.50 Euros return on the train. Also if you have time take the short trip on the bus from the main bus station the No 1 if I remember right to Oosterbeek to visit the cemetery. Graham
