Here's what I am hoping will rekindle my modelling mojo, after searching through the stash I have decided on this. A model kit which celebrates it's 40th birthday next year and still the only one in it's scale which I find hard to believe and when I bought it set me back £21.99 so im guessing that was in the 80's. The beauty part is the 1/48th Tamiya Lancaster and the Beast is I am using the Paragon conversion and making a MkII Hercules powered version. I also plan to use the Eduard big Ed set, Belcher bits SBC's and Cookie with the decals from ADS.

The first thing that needs to be addressed is moving the wireless op's window as on the Tamiya kit it's about 1cm forward from where it should be plus this Lanc didn't have the fuselage windows or the aerials so these all needed to be filled in.

Heres a build I'll be keenly watching. I built one of these a while ago, basically OOB & gave it to my freinds grandad, a navigator on lancs in. WW2 but I have another in the stash which will get the works.
It is a very impressive model when built & painted.
Looking forward to this build my freind :-)
Happy modelling, Martin

Got back working on her the fuselage has been rescribed and interior started and these Eduard bits take a fair bit of time but they are worth it.

Hello Lancman,

I was getting withdrawal symptoms so came to Check in.

Hope you are well and was thinking you must have updated it.

​Terrific idea and way to get the juices flowing again. Nice start on the Lancaster. Scale isn' the most important; it's the enjoyment and enthusiasm that counts.

Keep 'em coming

Managed to get some time back on this more interior done and opened up the escape hatch near the mid upper as both hatches were the same size while Tamiya's is quite a bit smaller.
