  1. If you ain't cheatin', you ain't tryin'! - Dennis S. Thornton, CO USA
  2. I imagine that someday, we'll see the early G in 1/32. Just not yet. All they have to do is scale up the CAD from their 1/48 waist windows, and mix and match some parts from the E/F and G kits. Voila. Early G. - Dennis S. Thornton, CO USA
  3. Dave is correct, both of the B-17G kits are identical plastic wise. The only difference is the decals. - Dennis S. Thornton, CO USA
  4. What a cool, cool release! - Dennis S. Thornton, CO USA
  5. Looking great Tom! Keep up the outstanding work! - Dennis S. Thornton, CO USA
  6. Well that certainly looks promising! At the very least, they got a correct cockpit floor/depth. That's a GREAT start over the competitors! - Dennis S. Thornton, CO USA
  7. I'm not at home so I can't check the kit marking options, but I can definitely vouch for the quality and ease of the kit! If you want to have another crack at a Gladdy, this is most definitely, without hesitation, the kit to go at. Buy it with confidence, and build it to represent your familial connection to such a harrowing time. - Dennis S. Thornton, CO USA
  8. Looking real good so far Andy! I admittedly cheated on my instrument panel assembly. I was trying, and failing miserably, to try and line up the instrument panel and the associated slanted column that attaches it to the cockpit floor/pilot's pedestal. I then realized that the fuselage halves have a slot for the instrument panel proper to assist with alignment. I simply separated the two! My instrument panel is attached to the fuselage halves, and not attached to the slanted column. As you stated, the rear of the instrument panel cannot be seen, and in reality, neither can the join
  9. All- Moving right along! If you haven't considered picking up one of these kits, do it! It's a fun build. Nothing fancy, no frills, but neat, and goes together extremely well! Hoping to finish seam work in the next week or so, and then I might start laying down some paint. Stay tuned! As always, comments and critiques are most welcome. - Dennis S. Thornton, CO USA
  10. Love it! Looking forward to your build. Now, you just gotta stick it to the rest of the airframe! - Dennis S. Thornton, CO USA
  11. He's still pretty active on Hyperscale, so I imagine he's still kicking around. Might try reaching out to him there. - Dennis S. Thornton, CO USA
  12. I've got mine on order from The Ukraine now! I've had pretty good luck ordering straight from Ukraine via eBay. Looking forward to this one arriving. - Dennis S. Thornton, CO USA
  13. Fantastic photographs! Thank you so much for sharing those with us. The bomb bay ones will be particularly helpful for me! - Dennis S. Thornton, CO USA
  14. Thanks Maru! This has been a fun build so far, and I'm looking forward to continuing on it. Hoping the new year brings more bench time, especially once the deck is done! And thanks! It was a very humbling honor to be approached by the curator of the museum to build for them. It all started with a display we build and brought to a local IPMS show, and the photos made the rounds online. The curator saw it, and contacted us. Sometimes, your work gets noticed by the right people! Two years later, and we've been contracted to build close to 30 models, and they will start going on displa
  15. I think any reference photos are a huge help to anyone tackling one of these kits! Feel free to post them here in my build thread. I know of at least one other person currently building a Lancaster that is following this thread, so I'm sure they would be of help to at least one other person! Sadly, I have never heard a Merlin outside of a P-51, let alone four of them! I bet it did sound glorious :-) - Dennis S. Thornton, CO USA
