I completed this huge model a few months ago - it's the stunning HK Models 1/32nd Lancaster combined with Iconic Air's Dambuster Conversion. The conversion set provides the modified bomb bay set up, the bomb itself, as well as a decal sheet for the 617 Squadron aircraft. I have chosen Maltby's aircraft, coded AJ-J.

 

Paints were from Hannants' Xtracolour range of enamels.

Absolutely gorgeous! What is the kit like to build?

Thank you. I found the tolerances very tight and you need to get everything lined up perfectly before joining the fuselage otherwise you'll hear a very unpleasant crunching sound... The engine cowlings again took a lot of careful alignment and are a tight fit to the wing. The transparencies are exceptional and some of the clearest I've seen. The last problem is the sheer size of it and it's a big model to wrestle with!

Is this the one you had at Telford next to Toms Halifax? They looked fantastic together. Cracking beast :)

 

Yes indeed it was - and thank you!

Good to see that again Rob.

When are you doing that 1/24 Mk IX Spit?

The Spit remains on the to-do pile, Frank. I need to summon up the courage to tackle all that resin.

 

Regards to all,

Rob

Looking at it on my phone, it coukd be any size though... any reference?

Span must be enormous!

It's about 3 and a half feet wingspan.

So about a good meter in conventional units :devil:

 

Not as much as expected!
