    Avro Lancaster

    Well it seems that I cannot send c.o.d. outside of Canada. So I will let you know how much shipping is.

    Yes I agree, I paint in sections as the model is so big and somehow with my daughter's help in the colour scheme it comes out ok.

    Oh No ! Not another lancaster !

    I HAVE had issues with the kit decals peeling and wrinkling after applying. The decals do not settle on the tamiya painted surface and when using flat clear coat is then the decals start to come apart. I have not had this problem with their other kits. After spending about $500.00 dollars to get this kit in canada I am now becoming some what pissed at HK. And I will not be buying another kit from them. The only reason is I wanted a large Lancaster is to enjoy looking at after it was built. But since I am almost blind and my younger daughter has to help me build these kits as my winter projects until I can get in the garden in spring. The model is helping me get thru the winter months. I think we pay far to much to HK. This time for a mediocre kit.

    The picture of the canned beans are what you have to eat for a month to afford the kit.

    Hobbyboss B-24: no turret fix in sight

    What is wrong with casting your own? I'm sorry if that retort is stark but I learned to cast parts I made up back in the bad old 70's. I will just build my b-24 with wheels up and hang it from the garage ceiling.

    I have been working on the HK Lancaster for about a month. Like all their kits it has been a hit and miss, a number of errors and omissions . I have never been in a british built lanc, but I have been in a few canadian built jobs and over the decades I have come to understand that there are differences between the two types. I'm building my lanc to hang from the garage ceiling o it is a wheels and bombay up and oil coolers closed.

    Junkers D.1 from WNW

    Yes I agree, every model needs a shower and a brisk massage after.

    HK Lancaster no. 3 to the GB

    I found that the pilot's seat is wrong and that the back angle of it looks like a lazy boy recliner. I heard that the bomber runs were rather intense so this would need to sit up more. In all not a bad kit to build as I am ready to close up the fuselage on mine.

    Yet another HK Lancaster

    That is very nice, I'm working on my Lancaster and will post some pictures with my daughter's help soon.

    HB B24 discussion: AM and fixes.

    Didn't matter to me as it will be wheels up a hanging from the garage ceiling along with the HK. B25 and Lancaster.
