Tamiya 1/48 Lancaster


Recommended Posts

A kit I've wanted to build for years and I managed to find one reasonably priced on Ebay. Built with a few extras from Eduard; masks, interior etc. and decals from Xtradecal. An excellent kit despite its vintage with mostly great fit.  Finished as EE136 "WS-R" Spirit of Russia of 9Sqn RAF with Hataka red range range acrylics.

Now to find somewhere to put it...

A stunning Lancaster, beautiful finish and markings. It must be huge! I’d love one but even in a four bedroom house I’m running out of display space! 😂

Lovely Lanc....one to be really proud of!

I have one in the stash with loads of aftermarket but one thing that worries me are the raised panel lines. How do you sand the fuselage seam without destroying all that lovely detail?

Easy , just put masking tape either side of the join. :like:

Wow!   Fine work on that monster!  :clap2:  My hat's off to you sir for I would never attempt such a grand project. :worthy: Well done indeed...oh, as for storage, you might inquire if you could park her at the local airport?  😃
