Anybody has. a better picture of this RCAF Lanc?  Build is from LSM and it sure deserves attention.

 

No pictures but I was blown away seeing this in person. Gonna be fantastic when it’s 100% complete

Good looking model. I wonder why it was display only and not entered 

 

It was not finished yet, display only.

 

looked superb in person.

Yes it is HKM kit with the upcoming resin goodies from Mike, I believe they will be available via Barracuda Studios. I might be wrong . Nevertheless this is a very unique and unusual Lancaster livery. One of my favourites.

 

I only got the most lukewarm of receptions to the idea of doing decals for that bird in 1/32.

That may change once the wheels , intakes etc. are out. There is a whole build article here , tons of reference pictures as well. It is not a complex conversion, just takes some time to research the particular airframe, since they were all different in lever and variety of upgrades and additions.

I know for sure that there is a whole bunch of Canadians who would appreciate a set from FunDecals.

Nice pictures, but I wanna see PEOPLE! I miss those familiar faces from a year ago!!

Lol, Tim I think most of us are stuck at home living vicariously through the few of the crew that went this year.

The decals are from Belcher's Bits. There is talk that Mike Belcher is working on bulged bomb bays for the HK Lanc which would allow one to build the wartime version of  VR-A amongst others.

What a way to get excited about building scale models! Really great stuff plus great opportunities. I did get to the meet and great but since the photo etch class overlapped it had to leave early. My next build will be greatly improved as a result if there’s any consolation. Decided to help with judging tonight. I did ships which was different. Very enlightening. I have to believe This will also improve my future builds. Pretty much did all classes today. Radu’s was super enlightening! It’s funny how you learn why they do it the way they do and then realize what complete sense it makes ;) when you thought there was no rhyme or reason to why those parts don’t seem too scale lol 

So regardless of whether it’s LSP or not this is my favorite 

86877C25-B0CD-44AB-8BC6-30539215A604-XL.

 

For LSP’s I’d have to pick these 3 but the WWI biplanes sure were tempting

7A8B3130-F2F3-441A-80E6-22894CDAC8BC-XL.

E31233FF-D509-49F1-8274-9DF734AD7BD7-XL.

04599B88-0F03-40E2-B8EE-A7E6417CE6B8-XL.

 

Saturday going to spend looking at models in detail and going through the vendor room. Dang this is a huge event. Glad I’m here 3 days.

Mike S has been working his 3D printing magic and there should be announcements coming out of Nats about distribution - I've sadly not been able to keep up with the news/pics/threads this time to know if it has been released or not, but I saw at our last club meeting what he's been doing and it is AWESOME...  I'll see what I can bring to Telford.  :innocent:   :m0152:

How did the LSP meet yesterday go?  We DEFINITELY need some pictures of the guilty parties!.  :beer4:

I was rather stunned at just how many Phantom models were depicted in the four pages of photos, all scales too. I don't recall a national event before that ever had so many Phantom entries.
