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.

 

Cheers

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

 

Nick

 

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:

Look good

 

For you battery pac you could use magnetic tape stuck to the door. It should be enough to magenetise againgts the batteries

 

Thanks! Not so sure about putting magnets next to a battery pack though. I think some electrical tape will do just fine :)

Thanks Craig! I did enhance it just a bit with the instrument panel but you can't even see it!

That is one great Lancaster you have built there, my friend. A real tribute to your building and painting skills. 

 

I was watching a Lanc taxying around a large field a few months ago ("Just Jane" at the Lincolnshire Aviation Museum, East Kirkby). It occurred to me that the design was a thing of great functional beauty. 

 

Cheers.

Impressive build Mark, if you had not mentioned the blushing issue I would never have known.  I thought it was some well executed fading.  Where are you going to display that beast?

and take pictures outside we all could see even more of this very nice model .

Thanks Frederrick! The battery pack for the lights won't fit in the bomb and I just wasn't in to making a custom setup. Sometimes you just have to hit the easy button :)

having put two of these together now I can say I concur with your comments. Its a great rewarding kit that builds up into a stunning subject. You Sir have done this more than a little justice. 

 

Great work!

Thanks guys! Display options are kinda slim so for now it's hanging from the ceiling. After I found a few large meathooks, just in case! :P
