    Hi Guys,

    Finished this toady, well nearly finished it.

    I started this one before my other one which is in the 'build section'
    This bird is a 'one off ' because each side has different codes/serials
    AR * Q, W4988 and AR * ! , JB657 and is built for a friend in Canada
    AR * Q has hand painted nose art. The kit is as can be expected...Airfix.

    I've had a one problem with it the letter for JB657 AR * !is not obtainable :cry:

    When it's finally finished she'll be on her maiden flight to my friends house in Canada 8)

    JB657. on this side What is the letter ????

    [​IMG]
    Queenie looks a proper Queen, don't forget i hand painted these, not the yellow gas patch though.


    [​IMG]
    Camo looks 'bang on' also canopy is hand painted.


    [​IMG]
    The underside is done in Humbrol coal black H85.

    So how many Lancasters do you have dotted around your house, Ian?
    I'm imagining a mini-RAF Bomber Command... :)

    You can never have too many Lancs. Ask "Bomber" Harris. :evil4:

    Great looking bomber!

    Hi there - that's a very nice Lanc you've made there. :thumbleft:
    Here's a little info on Lancaster W4988:
    Lancaster W4988
    And here's a little on JB657:
    Lost Bombers - World War II Lost Bombers
    It seems like it's two different Lancasters who crashed at two different locations at two different dates, but I may be wrong, as I don't know much about Lancasters. ;)

    Well Colin on the last count it was 30 :shock: ranging from 1/96th to 1/32nd.



    Protype Lancasters had a yellow underside instead of black and there was also 'TigerForce' Lanc's which were all white on the upperside and black underside, Coastal Command had a all grey upperside with a white underside, Canadians had Search and Rescue Lanc's which where all silver with red wing tips, GrandSlam Lanc's had a light earth and a light green Camo colour with a light grey underside.



    Widcat and Bikerbabe !. The person who has asked me to build this model for him is done like this because he had cousins on both Lanc's and as you've found out they both crashed and where all killed, It's his way of paying a fitting tribute to both crews of the Lanc's JB657 and W4988.

    Glad you like the 'twin' bomber it's a shame i can't keep it.

    Still need the code letter though :) so if anyone knows......:p
