1/32 HKM Avro Lancaster Mk.I Finished!

Recommended Posts

lovely work sir I love the lines of that bomber. I like it more then, dare I say it?, the B17


anyway regarding your battery set up wouldn't be more safe to put in the back of the big round tube in the centre of the bomb bay take out he back end no soul will notice and no need to tape it risking more damage to bomb bay and the doors...


just a thought.

That looks absolutely brilliant and you don’t see many built. If I may (and to be corrected) is the main gear tyres and the grey. I know their not true black but I’m not sure grey misting is the answer:sorry:
Apart from that, that’s a competition winner:clap2:


Thanks Steve! You're right, the tires are a little too gray - I used Mr. Color Tire Black, which seems to me to be closer to Gunship Gray but I haven't found a suitable alternative yet, at least without mixing my own.

impressive beast


i like the exhaust staining - what paints and colours did you use?


the cookie weathering looks a bit 'samey', and should it have that seam line on the end?


glad you got there after the clear coat troubles - must be very satisfying!


thanks for sharing




Thanks Nick! The exhaust staining was a random light airbrushing of overlapping whites, grays and black until it looked right to my eye. No special secrets there. As to the weaponry, I have a tendency to rush through the bombs and things and just forgot the seam :huh:
