Oh yes! I'll be having one of these. Would have loved the 1/32 kit, but alas, I don't live in Cardington airship shed, so 1/48th it is.

I wonder if they might consider a 1/48 B-29. Nice as their work is, I'm confident it would be welcome. This new release definitely will be.

I suspect by the time it appears with UK suppliers the price will have topped £100, but I could be very, very tempted when the Mk.III is out.

 

RF325 of the School of Maritime Reconnaissance in 1956, I think...

Price tag is the same as their Boeing.... 

 

I many years wait for quarter scala Lanc from Airfix, but Airfix probably can´t our moneys....  Their smale scale Lanc are best... But. thank you for HK....

I really don’t need this, however it will be so hard to not buy one. Also fancy the 1/32 nose section kit as well, could be a grand year for Lanc modellers of all scales. 
Cheers.. Dave

Oh my...

 

My girlfriend will probably throw me out if I buy many more models, let alone a 48th Lanc. 

 

I better have a look on rightmove...

Yes, it’s always a hard choice, but you won’t have any time for girlfriends so it’s a moot point.  Enjoy the Lanc!

This will be a licence to print money. 
 

Let’s hope the income from this and the 1/48th Fortresses mean there is the investment available for that long-promised 1/32nd F-4K/M!

Nice, I'll have one.

Bought the HK 1/32 Lanc nose and have their 1/48 B-17 ... can just about squeeze a 1/48 Lanc in too, wonder when its due out?

 

Be great if they did a 1/48 Stirling and Halifax too, maybe even a Catalina.

^ I too will be doing this. 

When it (eventually arrives) will be better to beg forgiveness then have asked permission for the purchase...

Firstly this is good news as the 1/32 scale one is just too big for me but a 1/48 scale one will be great.

So many ideas and things that can be done, but not sure if I will get to everything quick enough having my to do list rammed packed. However will just have to see how things go, firstly will need a kit, maybe 2 and that is where it gets expensive. After that it takes at least 6 months development, and by then so many people move on to the next new model......... 

I am not adverse to ideas and looking at things so no slam against you Homebee, but the modellers seem to think that all the conversions can be done as soon as the kit is released or soon there after, when the kit manufacturers have taken 1-5 years to develop the kit, and then me and the other guys are literally one man operations, and on top of that many of us have full time jobs.

HOWEVER THIS IS A GREAT KIT CHOICE IN A WORKABLE SCALE...........

How long before Tamiya Lancs are offloaded on eBay! Tempted but let’s see about the price.

 

My only surprise is that the marking options shown are also in the Tamiya kit.
