  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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?
  5. That’s quite exceptional Will, well done. I hope that mine come out as good.
  6. Thanks for your help everyone. As it happens the Recovery Vehicle kit actually comes with a motor in it. I have sourced three more (it’s always good to have a spare or two ) from Plaza Japan for an extremely reasonable price.
  7. Thanks Will, that’s excellent. Unfortunately I don’t have any of the Tamiya 4wd kits but I have found some motors. They seem to vary from considerably in price, from £0.99 to around £15.00 each.
  8. Good evening everyone. A bit of long shot I know but does anybody know where I could obtain a couple of motors which would fit the Mole and Recovery Vehicle kits please? Thanks in advance.
  9. The pilot’s headrest was omitted from all of the dams raid aircraft so if you haven’t fitted it yet you needn’t bother. They were required to get rid of as much excess weight as possible!
  10. I notice that the bomb bay roof has holes for 4 bomb racks across the bay........
  11. Apparently all of the aircraft are in post war colours. Camouflage was applied to the Medium Sea Grey on the Upper surfaces of the Lancasters and because the film was shot in black and white they sort of got away with it. The bomb dropping scenes are genuine Operation Chastise footage and the main reason for shooting the film in monochrome.
