Guess what? Another Lanc

Recommended Posts

Here some more pics.

I needed the fuel control knobs in the flight engineer panel so I made them with plastic card and rods.

I wanted a break from the fuselage interior so I built the engines.

Great looking panel.  The effort is paying dividends in quality of work.

 

 

Tank you. This is my first very large model and gluing the halves was a pain.

The problem is you used the Airscale instrument panel.  I have the same and had to trim the IP down to get it to fit properly.  I haven't glued the halves together yet. but am getting there.  I am curious how the fit will be when mated to the aft fuselage.  HMMMM

Very impressive work indeed, though I have to say that I'll be going interior green for the forward cockpit based on these pictures and some pieces that I have from the remains of a destroyed wartime Lanc:

It is indeed Andy, DV372 PO-F, "Fred the Fox" which to my knowledge is in original untouched condition.  467 squadron is my "specialism" and some years ago I was in touch with Arnold Easton's (the navigator) son, who sent me a copy of his father's complete logbook.  I've never seen a logbook so meticulously kept and with so much extra information in it, absolutely fascinating.  I also have a copy of Arnold Easton's book "We Flew Old Fred - the Fox".

It's in great condition and a wonderful exhibit, think I spent more time around her with the uncoming at the time HK releasethan the rest of the museum to be honest. Sounds very interesting and you are very lucky to have that log book!

Here's the great man, and a sample of his logbook:

Thank you for the pictures. I guess the interior colors are hit or miss.

Very clever but simple way of making the control wheel, thanks for sharing that tip, I’ve never seen it before
