    But where is the middle vertical fin? :confused: Did they make some without them? I know scant little about the Lancaster's failed origins. Great work! Keep the odd balls coming!

    Great work Ed! :D

    Vick, as far as I know, there was a lot of experimentation in the fin layout. Some had the vertical fin aswell (two sizes were tested I think), some just the outer fins...

    When I converted this model I had only the photo without the center tail. I didn't even know about it. Ah..the wonders of the internet ! I didn't know it was a "1a" until recently.

    Certainly a nice model Ed. I remember the original Airfix Lancaster kit first time around, back in the late 1950's, when it was state of the art - even though it was moulded in baked mud! You've done a gret job mate.

    Jan, I think if you can't see these it's because its a bmp file. So it has to be switched to a jpg. Only mods and the poster can change that. But why is it that some people can't see a bmp file?

    Great work!
