  1. Seems the best at the moment, from everything I've read on here and which has been recommended to me. I have about 6500hrs in the UK version, so looking for a good representation, this comes with very good reviews. Looking forward to a USCG version, in particular to see the painting/masking work. Good luck @Dads203

    Best Lanc?

    Thx 72modeler, appreciated.

    Best Lanc?

    Thanks chaps, all appreciated. If I buy the modern Airfix, that will give me G George, the 1980 release with the cookie AND the new one. Brilliant!

    Ok, I'd forgotten about Hasegawa, thx for that! New Airfix eh, ok, thank you!!

    Best Lanc?

    Gents, Ladies, your thoughts would be well received. I need a 1/72 Lanc, a BI or BIII. I'm pretty sure you guys won't laugh, when I tell you the last one I built was G George, coming home with #1 on fire, thanks to Roy Cross. I admit to having one of those upstairs (it's not a stash, by you guys standards, it's far too small to be a stash..). And the Halifax. And the Stirling... You get the idea... Anyhow, I need a modern kit, who's extra details will distract from the mistakes. So, your recommendations? Is the Revell the winner? Thanks guys, Rick.
  6. 12Jaguar, I never realised the faired in lights were adjustable! Was that a Stirling 'thing', or a common ability on other types? Cheers John, Rick.
  7. The retractable lights allow you to choose the angle of dangle! The wing AoA is obviously very different in the approach and taxying regimes, so this caters for both.
  8. Ian, you have convinced me chap, once again I learn new stuff!
  9. Ok, as I JohnT said, every day is a school day! I'm happy to learn, hope all goes well!
  10. Ok, this is speculation only, but... The forward guy is forward of the nav table. I've never seen any reference to a bench seat, it doesn't make any sense. It would block the already tight passage to the rear of the aircraft (trust me, as I get older, it gets tighter to squeeze through...). I reckon the forward guy is sitting on the Flt Eng fold down chair, in its rear most position. I obviously don't know for certain, it's my best guesstimation! Either way, it's great to watch this build, best of luck with it!!
  11. Err, navigator's bench seat, shared with the bomb aimer? Ok, now I'm lots confused (a common state, no real surprise). I thought the nav had an individual chair, on a swivel mount. The only 'double' seating area we have (PA474) is the 2 seats at the W/Op position, or the rest bunk down the back. Damn, I'm going to have to start looking things up again!
  12. Damn you fella, I never knew they used Hudsons, well you learn something new every day! Looking forward to this, particularly the paint job, as obviously it's not what I'd expect on a Hudson! Best of luck!
  13. Green down the back, black inside turrets and flight deck, as a generalisation.
  14. Our BBMF Dak is currently painted in these colours, in fact she's up today, pilot display practises. Best of luck with this, looking forward to the build!
  15. Ah, now, I fly piston as well! Although N1 rpms on a VC10, versus OAT, could be interesting... Pop, pop, pop, err, sorry skipper! Not me, although admittedly close!
