    HKM 1/32 Lancaster Kit review

    This doesn’t measure against your analysis: ‘...the Lanc has a lot of square edges and corners, none of them are rounded over, they are all sharp and defined. The HK interiorparts all have soft round edges’.

    Sorry, still confused. Can you see those soft edges here?

    Which internal structures have soft edges? I'm building it now and didn't notice any. Perhaps it was my photography? Also, as for ejector pin marks, please remember that this is a TEST SHOT and not final quality. I can't say whether any pin marks will be seen on the final, but these things have tended to either lessen or disappear when HK do the finals.

    It wasn't a review. It was a first look, and so far the only one we've really seen. You make your own assessment after I show the plastic. I will also review the WNW kit too, but maybe that will be biased as I received a free kit, eh? Lack impartiality? Fill your boots...

    You obviously didn't read my message thoroughly:

    But you haven’t bought it, right? So don’t. Buy the WNW if that is more to your expectations. Modelling seems one hobby where everyone seems to have some sort of high-end expectation. Maybe the WNW release has turned your head whereas it may not have before the kits announce. That’s something I’m seeing so much of. The HK level of detail was never moaned about on the Do 335 etc. yet, this is the same, contemporary style we see from many manufacturers, and on this Lanc.

    I wouldn't have the confidence to do a video. It's rare you even see me in family photos too!

    LSM has a sample and will be posted in the next day or so. No need to understand German to follow it.

    Impressive! What paint colour did you use underneath the wood grain decals?

    Ah, right. So not actually disappearing, but an illusion? Matt paint would lessen the appearance, but the textures wouldn't be lessened.

    How? You're not filling in rivets etc. You're painting a whole surface in an even layer of paint, not puttying it. Painting a Airfix 1/24 Typhoon, and I still never saw any of it disappear.

    Apparently, one of his female staff informed him after the fact, that he gave the V-sign the wrong way around, and what this actually meant. He was supposedly quite amused.

    Where did I imply that I was a fan of Hitler and wanted his image on a box top? Petulance is never an award-winning debate strategy.

    Are we so thin skinned? My family lost two in Lancs. One on training, one over Germany. Why do we live with perpetual offence these days?
