Hello all, Having been in the Modelling Wilderness for some time now, I have decided to come out of the shadows with a flaming pitchfork and a backpack full of goodies. I really have been incredibly lucky; I deal a lot with China with my business and through my Chinese supplier, I have in my possession, 3 Off 1/32 Border Model Lancasters. Masochism aside, Project of all Projects, I am going to build all three to make a 617 Squadron Diorama! I need to say as well that Nigel’s Modelling Bench has been invaluable in the researching of this project The Avro Heritage Museum has been worth a few visits too! Here are the three I am going to build; Lancaster B.I - PA474-KC-A (-T/-V) PA474 'Thumper' MkIII Flt Lt Bob Knight 617 Sqn Woodhall Spa, England. 1944 This one will be in maintenance to show off the Engines with ground crew all around her. Lancaster B.III (Special) - AJ-G Operation Chastise Squadron Wing Commander Guy Gibson Armed and ready with the crew walking towards her. Lancaster B.I (Special) – Grand Slam - PD119/YZ-J, 617 Squadron, Woodhall Spa, England April 1945 Armed and with Crew ready to Taxi Extras are going to be; 3 Off Magic Scale Modelling Light and Sound Kits Profimodeller Dipols and Pitot Tubes Sets Profimodeller Gun Barrels Barracuda Radios and Wheel Sets Robert Mrozowski Model Design Lancaster Cockpit Sets; these have extra detail over the kit if that were possible Airscale Lancaster Instrument Panel Upgrades IconAir Dambusters Conversion Set IconAir Grand Slam Kit - Bulged Bomb Bays IconAir Bomb Trollies' with Ordinance, tractors etc. Various figures, where I can get them... Various Vehicles. Custom built RAF Control Tower in 1/32 Kits World Decals Whatever else pops up,... I have built a table ready for the Diorama; Here are the three Lancs that will give me so many 'emotions' over the coming months... Here is the Nerve Center or Operations Room Right then, I could write something gushing, loving and hugging about this kit but this has already been done and it's a given that this kit is something a bit special. So, I am going to use an analogy here; In a certain aircraft film released recently (you know the one) there is a subplot about how things are going to be all drones soon and fighter pilots will be redundant but presently, pilots are being pushed as far as they can to prove themselves against drones. We all know that 3D Printing is the future but before we all go down the future route, this kit is pushing the boundaries as far as injection moulding can go and by God does it so that... Enough said So, first production line assemblies are going to be the turrets & instrument panels 2 Front Turrets 1 Top Turret 3 Tail Turrets Hope you enjoy...
I was asked to build this by Airfix Model World for this Octobers issue. A subject I wouldn't have chosen, but one I came to love and enjoy researching and building with the challenge of fixing a prototype plug and play system by Magic Scale Modelling. I'm happy with how it went and I hope you enjoy looking at it too. I won't spoil the article about the build... suffice to say it was very interesting to put together! Bravo to ICM for a cracking kit and Magic Scale Modelling for thier technology.
Firstly I am aware thus is the equivalent of the Marie Celeste but I just could not find any 1/32 USAF seated bomber crews. Plenty on their feet but none sat down! This is the HK models giant B-25J Mitchell with the Magic Scale Modelling light & sound kit. Painted with mostly Alclad airframe aluminium. Extras Eduard brassin wheels, metal legs, quick boost rear guns. Built for the fun factor rather than going for a technically perfect build and finish but I’m happy with how it turned out. I have 2 videos, one in the sunlight showing off the sparkle and one in low light showing the internal and external lighting. Thus is the 2nd of these motorised conversions I’ve done and it has to be said that discovering them has given my modelling a shot in the arm bringing them to life. I hope some of you enjoy it. Please turn your sound on when watching. Thank you for looking!
This will be part of a diorama consisting of the 1:48 Tamiya Spitfire Mk1 from 602 Sqn P/O Osgood Hanbury and the 1:48 Hawker Hurricane from Airfix. This submission focus,s on the Spitfire with Magic Scale Modelling ' plug and play Merlin Engine authentic sound system.
