My Revell Lanc built last year, reporting for duty! It was the first aircraft that I used an airbrush with, and it shows in places but hey, thats how you learn :P.

"A post for Lancasters?

"I'll throw mine into the fold, seen here before but no harm in repeating.

1/48 Diorama of PD259 463 Sqn RAF Waddington, This model now resides with the remains of the real aircraft in the heritage center at RAF Waddington"

How very evocative. My father surved as a Navigator on 463 squadron flying out of Waddington. His aircraft was Nick the Nazi Neutraliser LM130-1.jpg

I made the model from an Airfix kit some years ago, and will try and photo it for inclusion on this thread.

happy New Year to all.

Hi Mike

My father surved as a Navigator on 463 squadron flying out of Waddington. His aircraft was Nick the Nazi Neutraliser

Several years ago I made a model of Nick using a home made noseart decal. I spoke to the rear gunner, who at the time lived in Blackpool but was from Leeds. There is a commercially availabledecal sheet for LM130 but they got the colour wrong. I did e-mail them but as far as I know no correction sheet was issued. I have located the spot where I think Nick crashed, near Metheringham, and hope to go there next spring. Ever since I saw a picture of Nick in Lancaster at War in the 70's he's has always been my favourite Lanc . One day he's upgrading to 48th scale,

Regards

Paul

Ditto.

He's one of my favourites too and the Lancaster at war books made a real impression on me as a youngster.

I have plans for a 72nd version myself.

My favorite is also a 463 kite(s),Uncle Joe/JO*E/ED611 and Uncle Joe Again/JO*U/RF141.

Other than that it's one of the Kirmington mob,166's Fransdens Frolics/AS*M/ND653.

Not quite a kit, but a water colour of Santa Azuca (PB532) 100 Sqn inspired by a picture in a Lancaster book. Titled 'After the Storm'. Appologies for the deformation, it was the camera shot, not the painting !

Yes mate, thanks.

Liking that Maritime Lanc. Is there a conversion kit to do this to the Revell kit out there anywhere ? I'm assuming this is the Hasegawa one ???

Cheers, guys - that was the Hasegawa kit that comes with the resin lifeboat.

Yup, a lovely job there Paul :thumbsup:

By the way (and OT), you now describe yourself as "No Longer a Nefarious Foreign National". Do I assume correctly that you're now a citizen?
