Some of you will know that I'm building an Echelon Vacform Lightning F6 in the Cold War GB and that I'm also a "fan" of 56 Squadron and its aircraft.

After the Black Arrows, flying Hunters, had finished their stint as the RAF display team, it fell to 56 Squadron's Lightnings to take over the mantle, this in the days of the Lightning F1 and 1As. Sadly by the time the squadron were flying the F6s the aircraft livery was a little more conservativ
I've been working on this on and off for the last few months and have finished it off this week. I've used the classic Revell 1/48th B-17F kit and coupled it with Koster's vacformed beautiful early Fortress conversion set. This comprises a new rear fuselage with the distinctive 'shark fin', a new early nose and cockpit transparency as well as other various vacformed clear parts, along with some additional air intakes for the early oil cooler set up - all in all a very comprehensive conversion set.

For those that don't know, a modeller friend has given me this as he simply isn't going to finish it off, I was after a conversion and he had this part built, so after talking about it (me not knowing he had one) he brought it up that he had one and then he kindly gave me it too at the next club meeting, not wanting a penny! It's been stored somewhere between 15-20 years up in a loft and it's showing signs of being stored too, but I'm not bothered it's all easy stuff to f
