Lancaster Inner Nacelle Small Upper Intakes


Recommended Posts

I just received the Wingleader late production Lancaster release and it is a gold mine for my build. On page 24 there is a reference to the inner nacelle small upper intakes stating that the port intake is the larger of the two. Would any of you happen to have good photos that compare them?

 

Thanks,   Tom

Tom if you are referring to the scoop on the side of the cowling here is a pic of the one on the port side:

and here is a drawing from a manual showing the scoop which looks a little smaller:

I've tweaked this picture as much as possible Tom, the starboard one is easily visible but the port one not very distinct, perhaps you can make anything out?  I'll look at the rest of my Lanc pics to see what else I can find.....I must admit that was news to me too about the difference in sizes between those intakes!

You mean these ones by the exhaust:

the inner one looks larger.

Thanks Jari, I meant the ones on the top of the nacelle next to the wing.

 

Cheers,  Tom

Thanks yes, Those are they! The starboard scoop in the HK Models kit appears correct, but I’ll have to scratchbuild the one on the portside. I wonder if the Border Models release shows this?

 

Cheers,  Tom

Thank you Jari, these do help. I’m seeing however that closeups are pretty hard to come across.

 

Cheers,  Tom

Still viewable on the Wingnut Wings page http://www.wingnutwings.com/ww/productdetail?productid=3193&cat=6

I had seen these before, but thanks for the link. I’m wondering if they are the same shape and one is just larger. Perhaps the parts from the Border Model kit can provide an example?

 

Cheers,  Tom

If it's any help at all, this is the port inner on "Just Jane" at East Kirkby that I took in 2010:

You obviously can't see the starboard one from the cockpit.
