    WARNING PICTURE HEAVY SO MAY TAKE SOME UPLOADING 8)

    I do apollogise for not posting much on this forum! My original PC went down and lost hundreds of my fav' links forums.

    No weathering at all on this model as she represents a fresh over-all.

    I love it! Did you do the decals yourself or are they available for purchase?

    All depends were you get the model kit from Terry! My last three kits cost just £39 each including postage from HK :shock:
    There is a bloke at RAF Hemswell who sells the kits for £49!! He stands a stall in one of the Hangers,though he isn't there all the time :rolleyes:



    I got Bill the chap at CanMILair to make me some aftermarket decals, complete with the flags and other civil letters! Cool or what.

    CanMilAir Decals: Avro Lancaster B Mk.X - Mynarski VC, Avro Lancaster, 081


    Thanks for the 'likes' on VR-A. Must get checking out the forum again.

    Ian.

    I did make the moose but there is a fault with the Tamiya fuselage and canopy
    and the fuselage actually sits higher up and the DF Loop goes really close into
    the blister of the canopy, My moose fitted into the loop but the horns touched
    the canopy so instead on painstakingly make another one I binned the idea.

    My moose 4th attempt minus its horns and took me hours to make, and the pin is a nob pin.
