    That's fine Joachim, just let me know if you need them.

    Ahhhh Joachim, if only you had said about the drop tanks I could have sent you some spares that I have from other Dragon kits along with those twiddly handles! Still yours if you want them, but I'm away in Turkey from tomorrow till 5 March so bit of a long wait I'm afraid. You may remember from the G4 builds that Andy and I did that we said the engines nacelles are the trickiest part, and that included the modified G4 upper nacelle in resin.

    Avro Lancaster

    There's no definitive answer to this oft-asked question because it seemed to vary. But for me, forward of the nav. area is black, the navigator's area and aft interior green.

    how to replicate chipping?

    Look no further than p7 of Eric's sublime CAC Boomerang build in Works in Progress.
  5. Glad to see this one still going Karl, and you're right about photographing black planes.....and painting them as well! She's looking very good though.

    This is a fascinating build Joachim, I'm liking the level of detail that you've put into the cockpit. It's giving me itchy fingers for starting my Bf110F build, but that's "officially" not on the agenda yet!

    CAC Boomerang A46-217 “Hep Cat”

    A thoughtful and creative build, there is so much to learn from studying it.

    Playing with the light a little and enlarging suggests to me that it's a hole not a depression:

    So sorry to hear this Shawn, I can understand why you can't concentrate on modelling with all this going on in your life so you're doing the wise thing. You'll come back to it eventually refreshed, relieved and raring to go. All the very best with the future.

    I hope this is all just dry fitted......if not I don't envy you having to paint it!! Super work Joachim.

    CAC Boomerang A46-217 “Hep Cat”

    Now that's a realy ingenious way of using the Silhouette cutter that hadn't occurred to me, thanks for the lesson! A 'hep cat' is circa late 1950s slang for what may these days be described as a cool dude, though that's probably superseded now too!

    Guess what? Another Lanc

    Here's the great man, and a sample of his logbook: Sorry for the thread creep!!

    Guess what? Another Lanc

    It is indeed Andy, DV372 PO-F, "Fred the Fox" which to my knowledge is in original untouched condition. 467 squadron is my "specialism" and some years ago I was in touch with Arnold Easton's (the navigator) son, who sent me a copy of his father's complete logbook. I've never seen a logbook so meticulously kept and with so much extra information in it, absolutely fascinating. I also have a copy of Arnold Easton's book "We Flew Old Fred - the Fox".

    Guess what? Another Lanc

    Very impressive work indeed, though I have to say that I'll be going interior green for the forward cockpit based on these pictures and some pieces that I have from the remains of a destroyed wartime Lanc:
