  1. I plan to do the same to mine. Such obvious errors shouldn’t be made these days, especially on such an expensive model.
  2. Sort of. For accuracy, the solid triangles on the inner surface of each nacelle need removing as does the plastic at the rear of and parallel to the in line edges of the forward recess. The radiator flaps can then be fitted in either a closed or open position.I hope that it’s easier than I have made it sound.
  3. Both of them. On the real aircraft you can see the rear face of the radiator through the nacelle. The solid wall requires removing too.
  4. They do indeed, it’s something that I wish Tamiya had done from the start. The implication is that there will be a later mark issued in the future if this one sells well.
  5. The markings provided in the kit are all for early Lancasters which wouldn’t have been fitted with the blister. The conundrum there of course is why parts for the later radio fit are included .
  6. Peter, use a very dark grey, something such as Tamiya 69 Nato Black or Revell 09 Anthracite. They still give the impression of black but are less harsh.
  7. Definitely metal gun barrels (please leave one for me !) and I would also recommend the masking set too as there is a lot of glass!
  8. Something similar happened to me At Milton Keynes in April. I have the Dam Buster conversion set too, which is very nice. I recommend that you buy the Kits World upgrade decal sheet, the one in the kit has a number of surprising errors. The Airscale instrument panel is worth it too as the kit panel has blanks and there are no dials on the kit decal sheet.
  9. The current rumoured rrp for the Wingnut Wings Lancaster is around £600. The HK kit is actually quite good; yes, there are issues with it (particularly to do with the cockpit area) but it’s nothing deal breaking, at least not in my view. The mods may be able to move this thread for you, I found it by accident.
  10. I have also heard that only one engine and detail as far back as the front of the main spar will be included. Time will tell.
  11. It should be noted that the fret no longer contains levers and switches. Text on Hannants and Airscale website has been amended to reflect this. I have written to Airscale asking why they have done this. Edit: the information on the Hannants website from which I obtained my information is incorrect. The fret still contains everything that was included with it. It will benefit substantially from the detail fret which is also available.
  12. Thanks Mike, I found it after I wrote my post. There is a problem with it in that it’s square and folded down whereas in the Mk1/lll it’s rectangular and folded up. Oh the joys of modelling! I bought the Iconicair Dambuster conversion as well so I will store the bombs for now. I’m sure that they will come in useful sometime in the future.
  13. That’s one of the reasons why I use Halfords rattle can primer. Great work Mike, I invested in one of these yesterday. My question is why was the engineer seat not included?
