  1. Since the original post "1944 -- Having A Ball With Chain Lightning" somehow went T.U., I thought I'd try again, although this time, I'll add just a pic or two and see if the post "takes". If it does, I will edit the post and complete the original first installment! We'll see. Anyway, since I was born in 1944, and the Lockheed XP-58 Chain Lightning first flew that year, and since I've had the Planet Models offering in the stash forever, and this finally seems like a good reason to actually build it, here goes. First, the model: Above right, as is my custom, I immediately began the build in a non-standard manner (Instructions? Instructions? Real men don't need no instructions!). I began by gluing the cockpit side panels to their respective fuselage halves, taking care to position them so that the cockpit floor, etc. would fit later. I also glued the horizontal stabilizer/rudder to one of the two tail booms, assuring that the parts met at a 90 degree angle. Note that the lower fuselage half - the right side - had a bit of a slight warp to it. This influenced my descision to assemble the kit by NOT following the instructions. Now, we'll see if this post takes, before moving on. Ed
  2. Hallo This model is from Planet 1/48. Resin kit. All interior was upgraded and improved. At this time, it was our very summit of modelling. Since Hannants sold them cheaper for whatever reason, we bought two land versions and two sea versions. Again my wife and me. We did again all four models. She was Greek and me was British (from Abukir in Egypt), ex Yugoslavian. Happy modelling

  4. Been planning this for a while. I was unsure whether to cross kit or handle the full resin build, but spent some time tonight weighing up the pro's and cons. On the whole, most of the issues with the Revell Lanc are confined to the wings except for the front turret, so I cut the vac formed front turret out on the Planet kit and the fit is excellent in the front of the Revell fuselage, so that finalised the decision. I'll be running a couple of aluminium spars through the fuselage in to the resin wings like I did on the last one a few years ago for rigidity. I've actually got two Planet Manchesters, the Mk.I and Mk.Ia, so will do the Ia first as this will need less work (has normal Lanc tail feathers), but will follow up at some point with the earlier version. So, the plan: Revell Fuselage and interior Planet turrets and mid turret fairing (probably form a new rear turret due to the join down the middle on the Planet one). Planet wings, wheels and possibly gear legs, not decided on that yet, depends what's possible. The aircraft: L7463 started out with 97 Sqn based at Coningsby on 26th September 1941 in the markings of OF-P. From there, it moved to 106 Sqn on 20th January '42 and changed its markings to ZN-S where it operated until it's 12th mission and fateful end on the morning of 24th April of that year. Taking off from Coningsby at 22.00 on the 23rd, it attacked the Heinkel works in Rostock. On the return, the port engine caught fire. Losing altitude on one engine and slowly turning due to the asymmetrical power of a starboard engine on full chat, the pilot Harry Murdoch Stoffer ordered the crew to bail out to which all successfully did. Stoffer stayed with the aircraft, but unfortunately the fire burned through the port wing causing it to break away. Sadly he died in the subsequent crash in Visgaarde near Tinglev in Denmark. The kit will be built in the Planet supplied decals of L7463 in the 97 Sqn markings. The code letters are rather dark so I'll either replace them, over paint them or mask them. I'll get some pictures up tomorrow
