    Hi Chaps,

    This question will get your minds wandering!!

    After finishing a 1/48th Avro Lancaster with the re-positioned upper turret which is a Glen Martin turret
    complete with 50 cal' machine guns, I'm going to build yet another Tamiya Lancaster but this one will be
    in the guise of ''Just Jane'' NX611. The Lanc' which is at East Kirkby.

    Anyone know what kit maker has this clear frameless turret in the box ?

    I've had my GM turret for many years and for the life of me remember what kit it came from :rolleyes:

    Its not a turret from a B17 by the way but look similar.

    Cheers.
    Ian.

    I was just going to steer you in that direction, that appears to be the one.

    Can't you write Revell and say that the turret was missing in the kit? ;)

    That is 'sneaky' but I've got an un-built B17 which has a clear part missing and they will not send me a replacement no matter what.

    Tried Monogram too about a replacement clear part! No success there neither.

    I might buy the B26 kit and return it as its got missing parts.

    Still oggling your sexy Avatar by the way :love6:

    I will make a trip to my daughter's house tomorrow, I have several boxes of old models and I think I have a B-26 in one of them. If I can find it, the turret is yours.

    Awfully nice of you and would be a bit better than an empty vac' part.

    I live in the United Kingdom you know so wouldn't the postage be expensive ?

    Possibly, but I still have to find it, are you up to the point where you need it? I got sidetracked by my wife. We will be going to the storage shed in the morning.

    Be quite a while as I'd have to get all the parts together, so no rush but if you can't find it don't worry as I'll order the vac' parts from Hannants.

    Talking about expensive postage! I've just made a enquiry into some 'Prop Blurs' from the USA and it
    would cost £10 or $17 just to post a letter, Postage from the USA is madness. :oops:

    Want some 1/72nd Prop Blurs and they are $13.98 for four but the postage is a shocking $17.
