Avro Lancaster STGB Chat

Recommended Posts

I have Airfix's 1/72 Dambuster version (the latest tooling) and Eduard's BIG PE and mask set, so count me in (though I probably won't finish it in the three month period of the STGB...)

 

Cheers

 

Jaime

Please sign me up for this one V-P, and who knows I may even be able to persuade SWMBO to buy me a suitable kit for Christmas.

with the health warning that whenever I think I can do a GB life always comes along and smacks me in the face with work etc.  I do have a small Lanc project with all the am needed in the stash so this could be the right KUTA to actually do one for once?

I'm in!  It's aways off, but a Lancaster has long been on my modelling bucket list.  Thinking Tiger Force or a post war foreign operator.

2020?  I might just have enough time to plan and clear my diary 😀. I hope the house build might even be through planning by then !

2019 will pass by our eyes in a blur and we'll have this STGB beginning sooner than you'd think :coolio:. V-P

No, that was in January 1941.  This notable date is about a year later.

Close.  the GB start date is two days off the 78th anniversary of the first operational mission.

According to our dear and ever-so-reliable wikipedia: "On 2 March 1942, the first operational mission of the Lancaster, deploying naval mines in the vicinity of Heligoland Bight, was performed by aircraft of No. 44 Sqn." V-P

When: 29.2.-31.5.2020

 

With the B-17 STGB fever rising in me I noticed some members were wanting an Avro Lancaster STGB too. Quite quiet on that front since then, so I thought why not think aloud and ask if other members would be interested in one? The first Lancaster STGB took place from January to April in 2011, which means it´ll probably be all of ten years between them, if and when we manage to gather the required number of interested! Since I built my latest Lancaster... that must have been in the 1970´s! Because the then-host of the GB hasn´t been active in the BM forum for almost a year, I hope no-one regards me as a theme-thief by doing this :coolio:.

Back in 2011 not just Lancasters, but also Manchesters and Lincolns, were eligible - but in this case and in our STGB 2.0-era I´d say no to them. "Just" Lancasters EDIT: and Lancastrians :pilot:

 

Hi,

 

Just notice this proposed build, and once I have finished my Shackleton MR3 in the Frog build, I was considering starting my Lancaster IV/V conversion. Unfortunately, as this was later renamed Lincoln I guess I can't enter it, which is a pity as the timing would be perfect. Sorry, not sure what the difference if between a STGB and an ordinary one is so perhaps I might not be eligible anyway.

 

All the best - I will be watching with interest whilst probably building a resin Manchester! to complete my Avro heavies, at least until |I do another Vulcan.

 

Pete

Pete, since post #1 Lancastrians have been included... And since the first Lancaster STGB allowed Manchesters and Lincolns, why not allow them the second time too? People change, and their opinions too. So you're very much welcome with your Lincoln :yahoo:. V-P
