HK Models 1/32 Avro Lancaster

Recommended Posts

Today got into one of the engine nacelle. The underside is completely filled in where you should be able to see the rear side of the radiator and engine, so I sawed and sanded  some plastic away.

The nacelles side by side to show what I removed.

I have just ordered the Eduard PE set for my Lancaster. Stupid me didn’t have a look at the instructions on the Eduard site before I prepaid for the set. I must say after looking at the instructions I am extremely disappointed with what Eduard have in this kit. All of the replacement radio panels are dead flat apart from some grab handles. There is 1 small add on to the seat and the oxygen holder and a couple of other minor add ons. The instrument panel also looks very flat. I think Eduard have dropped the ball big time and just rushed this set out. VERY DISAPPOINTED.

Have you try to cancel the order?

Got some more done today. I have finished one of the outboard engines and the surrounding frame work that holds the engine and oil tank. This is straight OOB.

Hi Richard how the hell did HK and the experts miss that with the nacelles and I'm surprised no-one else has spotted this. The mistakes are fairly totting up on this kit which just shouldn't be there if the research was done correctly.
