Hey guys! Would anyone who has the kit and isn't building the 'S for Sugar' markings mind sending me the decal for the big starboard 'S'? More than happy to pay for it and pay for postage, of course. I *might* have put a big finger on mine while it was wet during the maneuvering of this rather large beast and it may or may not have ended up looking like tagliatelle stuck to my fingertip...

 

If anyone can help out, give me a message! Thanks! 😀

Just tried to search for Lancaster Worthpoint as suggested above. Seems to be an ebay thing and want your money and details first.

Anyone got a better result?

 

Or what is the considered opinion now the pkastic is out regarding the canopy and the rest of the model please?

MITA.

This is good "nitpicking". On modeling news or Polish model web are "Lanc" build and look as Lancaster. I don't see inaccuracy. Life is too short a make stress with not exist problems...

But still not Grand Slam /Tallboy special or Dambuster. In 1/32 have Specials in one box...

I love nitpicking about details and shapes as the next member, and I would be really interested if part X of model kit Y is slightly off, but I think we should have some evidence (comparison kit parts to scale drawings, real-world measurements, and to some extent photos) before speculating about it further.

 

So far, I have seen no evidence that there is anything wrong with the dimensions of the canopy of the HK Lancaster. If something does come up, I'd be most interested :)

@LooseSeal If you don't have any luck here, I'd suggest the wanted section, but your post count is too low yet. If no-one can supply the decal, try making a mask or having one made. HTH.

Does anyone know if there will be a later release with a Dambuster version?

Dambuster seems logical, since they did it in 1/32 but only HK know for sure and they aren’t telling so far. A release with the bulged bomb bay for the Tallboy and 12000lb HC bombs would be nice too, since Tamiya didn’t do those versions either.

...yep Tallboy would be great too...
