Chaotic Mike

The first HK Lancaster WIP?

Recommended Posts

Hello, 

No sooner do I put my Special Hobby Tempest to bed, than the largest model box I have yet to see lands on my doorstep. 

My goal is a medium-weathered, semi-see through, Lancaster B Mk 1. I fully expect someone to come up with vinyl masks for R5868 at some point, and when they do, I shall strike! Failing that, I I'm sure Mal's Miracle Masks (or similar) can be induced to create something appropriate. 

I can do sprue shots if you *really* want but you all know what it looks like. 

 

Back to work for now. Emerson, Lake and Palmer to keep me sane...

To paraphrase Jaws, 'I think we're going to need a bigger ...........'

Might have to set up a seating area in the car park for this one!

Semi see through, do you mean flak damage?

I'd be interested to see the sprues spread out to picture the surface area and the box size! 🙂

 Clear fuselage halves are provided in the kit to see inside.

Think he means half transparent fuselage as you get both options in the kit

Its got to be a 'MUST SEE' build

I have already clicked the  'FOLLOW' button so I dont miss diddlley

 

There has been much talk about its faults such as two dinghy stows, one each wing and wing tip lights etc so you will be the first to set things right . . . .

I'll perch on a tree lime for this one. Leaving the ground open for all the parts. That is if no one minds. I've found myself progressing to the larger scale over the last half year or so. Joints stiffing and the like. Watching with great interest and may over time get one of those HK kits..

Interested in seeing how the issues are attacked and fixed

Comfy chair to sit on and a pipe to chew on and point knowingly at strategic moments.

Erm... I'll do my best, but I'm not planning on fixing too many issues, not least because I don't know what they are! I think @Mancunian airman is your man there. Of course, should he alert me to quick fixes, I'll apply them but I draw the line at sawing... My Tempest gave me quite enough trauma there!

We all know you will do your best. I bought 3 Trumpeter kits recently 2 P-51B/C's and P-47and plan on some treatments. Also a couple of the Revell P-51D's. Waiting on myself to finish the inside of my hobby building to start. In the near future.

Okay, Mike - not excited by the HK Lanc but, as I popped in, I have to know - what the hell is your avatar playing? 🙂
